A couple of very quick trips to the Small River, the second of which I spotted this beauty sat between two weedbeds - a proper fight - and a fantastic double at 10lb 12oz! They are turning their noses up at bread now - only luncheon meat will do - autumn is offically here!
And the sole... Not an 'eel... Guess I was in the right plaice...
With the weather finally turning and summer a distant memory I thought I'd look back on my Pre-Season targets:
- Take my Small River barbel total to over 1,500 fish - 1,591
- A new PB rudd (2lb+), roach (2lb+) or perch (3lb+) - 2lb 10oz
- A new river (Thames?) double figure barbel - Severn
- And a double figure pike from a new water
