Boat! Sunshine! Zed?


So far this season I’ve caught 26 species of freshwater fish (including subspecies and hybrids), but there is one obvious one missing - so me and James hit The Thames for an afternoon/evening chasing zander.


It was a lovely afternoon, far too bright for pike - let alone zander. No feeding predators but I can think of worse ways to spend an afternoon than floating about on the river - counting down to sunset!


As the light faded hopes were high, but to cut a long story short - just three dropped runs between us. No zander to add to this year’s list - can’t win them all! And for the records, here’s the list:

Barbel
Bleak
Bream
Bullhead
Carp (Common)
Carp (Ghost)
Carp (Koi)
Carp (Mirror)
Crucian
Choach (H)
Chub
Dace
Eel
Goldfish

Grayling
Gudgeon

Roach
Rudd
Stickleback
Tench
