Yep I went fishing (no brainer!!!)
first cast out at about 11.15 am ...packed up at 7.30...home in time to watch a bit of telly with Mrs C ...she was as good as gold!

Back to the fishing....river VERY low..bright sun, very weedy...both on the deck and weed coming downstream... quite difficult conditions...but I managed:
5 Barbel up to about 7lb (lost 2 )
2 chub up to about 2lb (lost 1)
1 eel about 1lb !!!!
So all in all a pretty good day !!!
Thought I would bore you some pics of some of the catch !!!!!

Nice fish,what reel is that?

It's an Abu Garcia Ultra Cast ULT 4000

I bought it for 15 new (friend's son works in a tackle shop!!) I really like it...although the front drag took a bit of getting used to !!!

You were right Codger, very boring. [:)]

So that's what a Barbel looks like, I thought it was something to do with weight lifting.[:)]

Seriously thought about it mate...but then decided not to fish till dark, as I usually do....so a bit of a compromise...and I stayed dry!!!!
