Another whirlwind trip to the river, the weed is starting to die off - which you’d think would make fish spotting easier but these fish are great at hiding. Sometimes the river looks completely devoid of life.
After a bit of walking I spotted a barbel and soon tempted it to nail a bait, 6lb 0oz. Next fish spotted was the one above, either 6lb 11oz or 7lb 11oz, I got distracted and didn’t write the weight down and now I can’t remember - getting old!
Next one I spotted looked big, a cracking fight and I was convinced I’d bagged a double - until I lifted the net, 9lb 7oz, best of the season so far and she’ll be a double in March. Then I wrapped up proceeding with a couple of splashers - 490 caught, 10 to go!
And why the title of this post? Does he even know what a rampant rabbit is? Well I’ve caught some weird stuff over the years but I think this will take some beating..!
