from Simon McCabe’s Banklife Adventures

Its Friday afternoon and as Simon finishes his week's work, he takes an unexpected call and an invitation to go and fish with one of his carping heroes. He packs his gear and heads off in the van to Shrewsbury where he meets up with all time legend, Frank Warwick on a syndicate lake. After picking Frank's brain for some local knowledge, Simon sets his traps and settles down for the evening. As dawn comes around, Simon and Frank reveal the 3 stunning fish that they caught overnight. Frank gently slides his fish back in under the lilies whilst Simon manages a slightly comical release which involves a great deal of water being splashed on him. Simon hooks a nice fish takes him into a snag and although Frank helps him get it out by grabbing the line and teasing it out, it immediately gets back in again and its a lost fish. Simon then sits down to have a proper bankside chinwag with Frank and finds out why he loves this syndicate lake so much and how his approach to fishing has changed over the years. Frank also discusses some technical elements to his current Carp fishing including his reasoning behind using a heavier weight than most anglers for improved hooking capability. As the session comes to an end, Simon once again reflects on his journey back into Carp fishing and how this experience with Frank will stand him in good stead in the future.
