Well I am currently sat in the pitch dark on the bank of the river Nene, other half is asleep in the motorhome, stars are out and my two dogs are snoring beside me. Does it get any better? Oh yeah, I really ought to catch summat!
Bit slow coming back. So far not the busiest night I have to say. Only managed a pound of chub and a slab at 5 1/2. Been trying to crack the nearby weir pool for the last few hours. Last time there produced a 6.5 barbel and two decent chub at 4 and 4 1/4. got a bit barbel obsessed since then!
Back to the bank after my toast and cuppa in the motorhome
Apologies for the lack of updates, was bring given the once over by the environment agency! There is a lock here that has apparently been vandalised before so they keep checking on it. Also there have been a lot of fish thefts in this area. I have to say, that's the first time in thirty years of fishing that I have ever been checked for rod license! I don't mind at all though, the p es who break the law give he rest of us a bad name! Actually good to see checks happen.
Well, not much to update on the fishing front. Nothing sizeable about, been mostly picking off little chub and dace. Great venue this here place, got main river, weir pool rapids and a slow flowing back water to go at. Means you never get bored, just wander.
Presently, I have wandered back to the van for another cuppa
