...Back down to Earth. Well after the nine pounder I've just had two blanks. Friday myself and Dan fished for 5 hours without a bite. Yesterday myself, Dan and Darren fished for 10 hours for one lost fish, Darren lost a cracking chub. That's a combination of 40 rod hours, and shows what a fickle river the Wandte is.
The good news is we explored a lot of new water and saw a lot of fish. 10-15 barbel and lots of big chub. And one of the barbel spotted could only be described as a lump. Perhaps the legendary Wandte fifteen pounder is real!
