Well, yesterday I treated myself to day off work, fished a club stretch of the Ribble and was rewarded with 55lb of mainly dace, about 25 roach and a few baby chub.. and I missed the net with a few and lost about 20 big dace in a weed bed, so 60lb was on the cards.

Lots of fish in the 3-6oz bracket, I didn’t have a fish over 8oz!

Reminds me of the nets of dace I used to get at Teddington on the tidal Thames in the 70's. Lovely bag of fish

These are becoming regular again on the Ribble pal. When they shoal up for winter I reckon you could do 80-100lb if conditions are right.
