|One of my favourite trotting swims - this can produce anything on the day|
March 3rd - a few fish from trotting, including one better chub
|A rare upside-down chub|
March 9th - I tried dragging some bait along the bottom of the weir pool which produced chub (in the 3-4lb bracket) and a good perch (among others) and a few dozen small perch further up, thanks to a tip from another angler.
|This perch went 1lb 8oz|
|A couple of quality chub|
March 14th - buoyed by my success on the weir pool on the previous visit I was dying to give it another go, convinced there were bigger perch to catch. Only to find the peg was occupied.
I fished some of the swims above and below and managed to bag a few fish as well as this chub that went nearly 5lb
The angler on the weir pool finally moved on after bagging a near-2lb perch, so I thought I was out of luck.
But a short while later, the stick float went under and this little fella appear - a pb perch of 2lb 13oz. And that as they say, was the river season well and truly wrapped up. Result.
