I headed down the Tees today for my 1st river session of the season, i arrived around 8.30am and setup in one of my fav pegs, one rod setup on meat, the other on pellet.
After about a hour i had a real wrap around on the meat rod, struck into thin air[:D]
The same again happened about 20 mins later.
Time for a quick move upstream.
I fired out the same baits on both rods, 45 mins later i latched onto what i 1st thought was a chub because of the lack of fight, lol how wrong i was, 5 mins later and im looking at my PB barbel, the kick in the teeth was i hadent packed my scales.

Sorry for the picture quality, my mobile aint really up to it[:(]

Where were you fishing Tez? Near Dinsdale? I've been planning going up that way but i've never had the weather for it. Was the river pushing through fast?
