Finishing The Spam

With three hours of light left in the day I thought I’d pop down the river and finish off yesterday’s tin of Spam - waste not, want not. And a great way to do it; 3 barbel and a bonus chub.

Last fish of the short session was this beautiful double, my fifth over the magic weight this season. I still had light but another landing net bites the dust - I really go through landing nets!

For the records: 10lb 3oz, 7lb 5oz & 6lb 2oz (132)


  1. Nice barbel mate. I managed to finally sneak a trip on the wye today on a rising river. Managed a pb pike though, a few ounces short of 20. Hopefully see you on there over Xmas!

    1. Cheers. Congratulations on your new PB! If the Wye is in its banks I’ll be there over Christmas - not had many pike this season. See you there...

  2. You could have stayed home and made fritters. Such a waste.
