Captain's off the menu today, been fished hard over the weekend so headed off to Crane's for some afternoon feeder flinging. Windy and warm, why wouldn't you?
Coudn't resist a look for the chub off the bridge. Still there, and after a while get a bit blasé about so many 5 and 6lb chub milling about below. Humongous.
Feeder fishing by the large willow at the pump end gave several bites and two almost golden bream, this one of 5lb 8oz second cast
and an even plumper fish of 6lb 7oz. Very different to the Captain's fish.
Masses of tadpoles, great drifts everywhere. River is looking good too.
