Well as luck would have it the weather was good for my midweek trip to the Nene at Stibbington although a little windy. On arrival I had a quick look off of the bridge and as I suspected the river looked in great shape with some flow and a nice tinge of colour. The wind was from the WSW and so would be pretty much in my face so I figured that I would sit either just up or downstream of the bridge as this area is the most sheltered. Anyway after a quick look I decide to sit just above the bridge as this was by far the most protected from the wind.
Well its been a very long time since I last shared my exploits with you so apologies for my absence but in my defence I have been though the mill recently. Hopefully that is all behind me now and I can get on with my life and of course, the fishing. So with the weather on Sunday not to bad for the time of year I decided to have a short session on the Stamford Meadows section of the river Welland. On arriving at the river it had a lovely green tinge to it but it was hardly moving at all so I wasn't sure how things wood pan out. Having very rarely fished this section before I decided to head to the downstream end of the stretch and away from most of the people that were about enjoying the pleasant afternoon sunshine.
