My next PB 21.6.19

Posted by The Flying Tench , 21 June 2019 · 0 views

At the start of a new season, in case it's of any interest to anyone, here are my pbs so far. The question is, how to improve at least one of them this season given that I'm a bit of a cushy 'pleasure angler', not into all night stints and with health issues hindering also:
