Dark Water

Low light, clear water and sneaking about on the riverbank - stalking fish in winter isn’t the easiest of tasks. So my quick hour on the river this morning turned into five hours!

But they did slip up eventually - three barbel, 5lb, 6½lb and 4lb, plus a bonus chub that might have scraped over 4lb but as I could unhook her in the water I didn’t mess about weighing her.

  1. And I’ve just noticed the barbel in the photo has no anal fin, thought it looked odd. Another for my growing list of mutant fish!
