River only just in it's banks and brown as proper tea.
3rd swim down, and the 3 droppers of meat must have done their work..
Large chunk of meat, size two hook and an ounce of lead. Tap, tap and steady pull round. Several strong chubby surges to the marginal growth, line cutting through the surface and the fry gathered in the slacks scattering. Don't come off, don't come off. Which of course it did. Bite off? Which increased the chances of it being a pike not a chub but I'll never know.
