River Kennet - Newbury
1845 - 2315
Hot and muggy - temp still 21ºC when I got back to the car at 2330!
1 chub; 2lb 10oz, 2 Grayling 1lb 2oz and one not far under 1lb, 7 Roach - 4 really chunky ones biggest weighed in at 14oz, 4 Dace, a perch and a gudgeon (but yet again NO barbel)
This is getting a little repetitive! Another decent short trotting session - in fact for half an hour it was like fishing the Kennet of old - almost fish a chuck and never quite know what species would turn up next. I was also extremely hopeful of a barbel after the sun set as I'd seen a couple of flashes in the streamy water whilst trotting - but both isotopes didn't budge in 3 hours.
