21st June. River Kennet, Reading.

An overcast early morning session, less than a mile from the town centre.  5am ‘til 10.

8-10 chub to 2lb (lost count) 10-20 dace and roach (lost count).

Trotted maggot caught a chub almost every trot through for the first 30 minutes up to 2lb.  The followed by dace and roach to 8oz or so then the swim went dead.  In the last two hours I only managed two dace.  When the boats started I went home.  I pondered whether the chub are put off if you don’t use a keep net (I never do) as this sudden switch off with chub has happened before.

Wildlife – mink (again), birds - cettis warbler (amazing so close to town), reed warblers and a whitethroat.
