As promised i must turn out for the QT4s , and with the Soar in full floor , it was difficult to get several sections of opportunity into todays action. I drew Kegworth and sat 3 metres up from peg 10a where the river wild met the still water and cocao chocolate was the colour of the day .
I had the perfect shipping-back hole
Peg 10A under a couple of feet of water
Target area where the slack and boils are .......maybe a handsome chub for me .......dream on Phil !
Feature opposite ....if i have a 20 metre pole :)
Decided to long line as i had much debris and branches in the water and they were stuck and not easy to clear out.
Match was tough which was expected . My plan to fish at 13 metres back fired as i found to my dismay a obstacle at that distance that was some 4m long by about 2 metres depth and also had height as i noticed my 7' depth would often push the float up :( .So after 3 hook lengths were claimed i re-plummed the whole area and decided at 9m left and right . However the jacuzzi boils were ploughing in from the left so it was showing irregular flow and an feed i was placing was shifting in all directions. I tried for 2 hours to get a substantial fish but failed as i thought a bream shoal existed around these parts but none came my way :(
In the end i fished on the surface and took sporadic bleak for about 70 units for 2-10.
Joe's fish with a good bonus fish .

The days top rod was Adey with a creditable 6-10
