Kevin & Chums


Couple of quick trips to the river this week, Tuesday evening me and Dan hit the river after some barbel. Dan got this 3lb 7oz chub and I added a 4lb 0oz barbel to the challenge.


Then yesterday afternoon Dan continued his search for barbel while I tried to find a roach, but fishing was slow. After an hour or so I connected to a fish and the conversation went like this:

Brian: I've got one!
Dan: Is it a good fish?
Brian: It's Kevin...

And we both knew exactly what we were talking about! It was the same koi that Dan had a couple of weeks ago, Kevin the Koi. I got a photo of the other side of the fish.


I followed this with a barbel about 6oz, a dace and a yoda. The first yoda I've ever caught! I forgot to weigh it but it's a new PB.

Dan didn't have any luck with the barbel, and it's getting cooler, I think we're running out of time to catch a double this year... But it only takes one bite...
