I'm guessing I was about 14 when this was taken.That would make it 43 years ago. Eek ! Its possible I had hooked the bottom rather than a fish:)   This one was taken at the same spot yesterday a

Moved further down south recently the canal is a 5min walk so after years of barrowing around a ton of carp gear around packed lakes started fishing light. Drop shotting for perch and pre baiting like

Barbel around us been decimated by otters Sean .Very sad to see a double with its brains gone .

Was hoping to see the otter yesterday but no show .

So glad I caught a 13.6 back in 2002 at Lacock  Abbey stretch of Bristol amalgamated .The river there now is weeded to feck and very low .Been some pike caught there in the upper 20s but I’d be very surprised if their about now .

Small tributary of the Charente. Only a few inches deep in most parts but with some chub in deeper pools.

 

Bait was small pieces taken from a wopst nest. Got 2 small chub in just under 2 hours.

Last week I broke off on the strike when the braid line got trapped in a gap in the bail arm of a new reel. So I went back today with a different outfit and, yes, you've guessed it. A no show.

Given myself this week off, so everyday either bassing,  coarse fishing or roe buck stalking,  or combination of.

Today it was some new lakes up the road, interesting learning curve with a handful of fish to about 6 lb.
