The first session of the spring is always an exciting time, with everything coming to life, from the birds and plants, to - hopefully - the fish. This spring is now going to be a time of change for myself as well, with a new job and a change of hours which will be eating into my fishing time, so every session will be short, and my decision making on where to fish and how to fish will have to be much more clinical. My first session of the spring, I would be trying for the Bawburgh lake bream. In the past Bawburgh lake has produced a large number of double figure bream, but over the last few years they have reduced in numbers. I was still intrigued to see what was in the lake, so, after I left my old job on the Friday lunchtime, I made my way to the lakes to see where was free, and to see if anything was showing. After a quick pit stop at the shop to pick up some supplies I arrived at the lakes to find it was pretty quiet, so I headed for a swim that looks out over most of the lake, and stood in that swim for a few minutes to see if anything was happening. Within that few minutes, a couple of tench rolled in close, so I went back to the van to get the marker rod out and have a throw about with the Deeper Pro Plus, to find an area out long which I have fished before, and to map the swim out for future reference.
