Simon has a 24hr session planned on a local day ticket water, so starts getting ready the day before, making some rigs and preparing his baits before packing up the van with all his newly acquired carp gear. He also takes some time to study the lake Google Maps and formulate a plan of attack. Arriving at the Mill, he unpacks his gear onto a barrow and moseys on down to one of the stunning swims on this beautiful 3 acre lake. He's fishing in a corner, so puts 2 baits out along the margins with one straight out into the lake where he saw a fish roll earlier. The rain starts and doesn't let up at all, lasting all night into the next morning. As Simon is fearing the worst, in the morning, his line shoots out and a fish is finally caught. The left hand rod down the margin soon goes too, and more fish follow and its beginning to turn into a red letter day for Simon. Simon's return to carp fishing is a resounding success and he's naturally delighted.
