First trot of a piece of flake on a Kamasan 12 under a small Drennan stable stick and a hand sized roach.
Winkled out some dace and a gonk:
Damsels everywhere, and kingfishers and a curious magpie. Not bad for the edge of the city and a massive Uni/ Hospital/Sports Park complex.
Half an hour to go, out with a larger hunk of flake on the quivertip and a slurp of still slightly chilled Coke. A better cast to the raft, an almost instant three foot twitch and a great scrap in the clear water, I had to hang on to net it as there were two large branches coming down which were too big for Fido.
I'd say a summer slack good 3 +. Distinctive anal fin. Long, coral and tipped navy blue. Me thinks a few trips into dark once the hordes are back at school. Free and 5 mins from work. What's not to like?
