I decided early on to only target a few species rather than chase around. I did managed to caught some nice specimens from different venues, some new, some old, but all had stories attached to them.
Specimen list 2017
Pike 24lb 2oz
Rudd 1lb 8oz
Tench 8lb 6oz
Whilst I may have only targeted a few species, it didn't stop my have loads of other session on various rivers and stillwater too.
Other eventful moments during the year have been helping with the creation of the Crucian Chronicles which is the Association of Crucian Anglers first publication, coaching a junior piker to his first 20lb+ pike and taking my nephew out fishing again.
So not a back year all in all and I hope that 2018 will be equally enjoyable and I'll be back out after the tench and the rudd during the spring/summer with some additional trips for crucian's too.
