Had another session on this new spot last night. - 4 temperature, fist proper cold night after weeks of rain. Finger like sausages couldn't even hook a worm by an hour in. Hour and half and had lost 2 small fish and then managed a small one. I noticed that they weren't biting as aggressive as last week when I first tried here so I slowed it right down, rather than bumping the tip I just lifted ently til I felt the lines slack go, then I'd drop it an inch so it slacks, wait a while, lift it taught gefntly then drop it again and then sack, all of a sudden rod tip buckled over and I had this cracker. It looks bigger than my 3lb 11oz but this was 2. 78lb on the scales which is around 2lb 10 oz or 2lb 11oz. This fish could do 4lb easy with a good feed as you can see it's all length and no belly. Here she is.
