Fishing During Storm Francis And Thoughts On Life Balance

We’ve certainly had some harsh weather so far in 2020, and that was the case today, as Storm Francis was the latest name to batter the UK.

It’s a case of safety, obviously, when you’re out during adverse conditions, but just because there’s a storm going on, that in itself doesn’t mean you can’t fish.

I fished with the following tackle: Fox Barbel Specialist 1.5 test curve rod and a Shimano DL2500FA reel. 

The reel was loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon joined to 2lb 8oz Ultima Virage fluorocarbon by a loop-to-loop knot. 

The business end was a Drennan Super Specialist size 16 hook, which was attached via a blood knot.

A size 6 Dinsmores shot and a 5mm ESP shock bead created the six-inch hook-length, with a 1/4 ounce bomb above the bead.

I fished with a single white maggot on the hook and fed balls of brown crumb laced with mixed maggots.
