A couple of hours in my favourite gudgeon hot-spot this afternoon, trying to add one to this years River Wandte species list - but as always, when you fish for them they never turn up.
I did have a few chublets and the gudgeon's larger cousin - I thought for a second I'd caught a monster - turned out to be another baby barbel about 6 or 7oz. Meanwhile, Darren added a 3lb 10oz barbel to his season.
Last season I managed 10 species of fish, a number I'm hoping to better this year.
|Gugdeon||-||X||Trout (B)||s||s||X||= Caught|
|Koi||s||X||Trout (R)||-||s||s||= Seen|
First column is this season, second column is previous seasons. I've caught 5 species so far this year, most of the easy ones. And adding the 'Seen' column makes fish-spotting more interesting!
Others: Bleak, Carp (Common, Mirror, Leather), Pumpkinseed. Please feel free to add more below if you've caught or seen them...
