British Summer


A return to the regular British weather - so I popped down the river in the rain. Perhaps the fresh water would spark a feeding frenzy?


Not really! I was watching the barbel spook off the bait - still two small barbel and two small chub slipped up - I’ll take it!


Going to have to brave the tackle shop - get some maggots and chase down a gudgeon or two - perhaps even a perch or dace...

  1. A tackle shop???? I think I remember going there but it was so long ago.

    1. Think the lockdown has put a few out of business, but my local one seemed to doing a roaring trade yesterday when I walked past. I’ll have to grab a bait pot and join the maggot queue...

  2. Tough going mate, glad I haven't really tried.

    1. Got to be in it to win it - you never know, you might bump into a six pound chub :-)
