They had a lot of overnight poaching on an industrial scale so I'm not surprised. 

The little beck still holds a few surprises if you can been arsed trying, my hunting partner got land that the beck runs through an his kids throw a ledgered worm in there now an again an have had a few trout worth catching, it’s meant to be real clean these days, I was there showing him how to deal with the moles a few weeks ago but never even looked at beck tbh, might dig me #3 rod out an go for a brew now we mention it 😂

Tough place to get one out biggest in here is a common not been out for few years now, I see it couple days ago and general guesstimate from previous captures among the lads prob 35 ib ish, gin clear and full of weed, 4 nights on so see if I can tease one out. 



I have never understood course fishing but I can see the attraction from your post 👍
