Day 4: Half A Pint Please

Half a pint of maggots and a couple of hours on the river...

No big fish but a lot of fun...

And back home in time for the football!


I'm not going to include barbel under a pound in the challenge. Using maggots when after roach I will bump into baby barbel once in a while but they will unfairly bring the average size down. And for every barbel under a pound we'd need a double to even attempt a 5lb average.


  1. Pretty fish there. How do you like the centre pin?

    1. For trotting it's brilliant, far better than a fixed spool. It's not ideal for barbel because you can't keep up with them when they run towards you, probably the same with pike - but I'll find out later in the season!
