The water was clear and slow. Started on the pole float on the 12ft float rod about 8ft deep. 6mm punch over likky bread and hemp produced nothing. Switched to the feeder with bread punch and likky bread but once again nothing. This continued for a couple of hours so with half an hour left I packed up the float rod and switched to a small punch of meat with the feeder. 5 minutes and the tip drops the shoots round. Strike and nothing. On inspection the hook length has broken. Put a new length on and had one last cast. Same method. 5 minutes and the lip drops then goes round. Strike and a nice chub landed. Only fish of the day but the weather was clear with a warm edge after snow yesterday.
