After an afternoon thrashing the canals to a foam with lures without so much as a follow I thought I'd hit the Small River
for some barbel action. This much needed rain must have sparked a feeding frenzy - nope - just one fish! Anything but predictable!!
If in doubt, Barbel. My blank saver is normally a 2 oz silver, not a big barbel!!ReplyDelete
Very lucky with those barbel - but they’re going to get more difficult to catch as it gets colder...Delete
I think heavy rain after a long dry spell washes a lot of pollutants into the river, diesel, tyre rubber oil. and i think it upsets the fish. when it washes through they will feed.ReplyDelete
I agree, it’s almost an entirely concrete run off into that river with plenty of factories and main roads. But it will wash through quickly.Delete
