The river has been bank-high since I arrived on Friday... And it was still a bit high today, but it's my birthday and I fancied an afternoon crack at a Wye pike.
I was first up into the action with a 13lb 4oz fish on a ledgered sprat. A couple of hours passed before Roger had a 5lb 0oz pike on float-fished bleak. I then lost a low double at the net (ledgered bleak) and another fish unseen (ledgered sprat).
We did have a lot of dropped runs, I don't think there was anything wrong with the set-up, perhaps a bit lower water and they'll feed a bit more positively... Thursday... Fingers crossed!
