Disabled angler Andy is back to brave the heat.

Craig decided to join Andy for a short social session on Sierra Brava. The fishing was slow in the heat; in the 3 days Andy was there he had only managed 3 runs with fish to 15lb.
Craig suggested a move to another part of the lake due to the weather conditions. It was hitting upper 30´s for most of the day and the fairly strong breeze hadn’t changed direction in weeks.
After the move Craig soon realised that they would still struggle for runs, it wasn’t to be like the last visit with Kai a week or so earlier, there wasn’t much fish movement. Andy decided to use a variation of baits, pop up corn, tigers and a Quest Baits Fruity Trifle Boilie. Craig on the other hand stuck to his usual bait on all rods, A-Tract boilies. Over the 48 hours session Craig managed 9 runs and Andy 3.
As time crept by there was a little interest, Andy’s pop-up corn produced a 10lb common and he pulled out of a good fish on his Boilie rod. Craig had 4 runs from small fish and one from a lump that he pulled out of as he tried to keep it out of the sunken trees on the far bank.
As evening drew in on the first day, Andy had a couple of beeps shortly followed by a screaming run on his Boilie rod that was in open water. This familiar kind of take usually results in a bigger fish so Craig rushed over, it turned out to be a decent fish, new PB Common of 39lb 4oz.
