River Kennet - Thatcham
1030 - 1430
Bright and sunny. 8ºC. River VERY high - but surprisingly clear.
2 Chub; 4lb 13oz, 2lb 7oz.
New winter chub banker swim turns up trumps again! Wasn't sure what I'd find - or even if I'd be able to get to the swim - but after paddling through the field - found a surprising slack piece of water. Smaller chub first cast on a lob worm, 4lber 90mins later on trotted maggot. Lovely afternoon to be by the river.
Fat chub in its winter prime...
