Todber Manor Back of the Landing Net Spring Match.

There is very little in my life that I look forward to these days.  My bi-annual blankathon at the brilliant Todber Manor fisheries is one of them. Typically I do my blanking on Little Hayes lake but for a change I would be blanking on Wadmill Lake. Wadmill Lake it turns out is a beautiful little lake that has matured into the surrounding  landscape in such a pleasant way.

Keeping this one mercifully short, I recently attended the Back of the Landing Net Spring Match, and a bloody good time was had by all. The match was brilliantly conducted and there was a great atmosphere. Jay even got his nuts out for everyone to have a go.

For those of you who have never come across the Back of the Landing Net series. I strongly recommend the show on YouTube its got some top class fishing and some absolute knee slappers. The forums great as well and its got a much lower carp douche to sound carp angler ratio than usual. Here’s a few fish from the trip:
