Hey Martin!
Thats Great, hellova a lot better then I did!
However, I did acheive my goal!
Fished the convergence of the River Aa and the Werre in Herford, Germany!
However, On thr wrong Bank LOl,
River Werre , coming from my nearside was going through like a train!
River Aa , Lock controlled was easing through and a Polack immigrant (Not a word of German)
was fishing in a nice slack crease and I had to witness him catch (and Kill) 6 Bream about 1.5 lbs and a 1 lb carp, fishing pulped bread on a feeder, with flake on the hook.
I caught, firstly (and mission accomplished) a 1lb Barbel, followed by a tiny rainbow and then 3 Perch (best about 8 ozs), all on worm.
Maggot, meat and corn brought nothing.
Fished 8.00 to 3.30, when rain and freezing wind called a halt.
Son No.2 caught a single 8oz Roach, so the venue would be a damn good mixed fishery and I would love to see it again.
Two Previous Weser attempts washed out by horrendous flooding!

Cheers

hi trev.
its an oldish spool of braid so labels gone but it was a feeder braid name ? 8lb 0.08mm
as there was little flow i opted for 4x12 polestick float (0.34grams)i use these for worm because you can dot them right
down and ill fish over depth by 6 ins with a no 8 shot just off bottom
10ins above no8(0.06g) il have 3x no6(0.1g).
bait 2ins sect of lobworm or 4x redworm
water was 4ft6ins @ 8mts.


tight lines.
martin.
