K&A Canal, Thatcham
0700 - 1000
Mild (15ºC) and mainly overcast - sunny for last ½hour
6 Perch: 2lb 15oz, 2 around the pound mark and 3 tiddlers. 2 Chub both circa1lb, 1 Roach (small)
Successful dawn raid for a big stripey - though in truth the crayfish were rather too active for the majority of the time - especially once it got properly light after 0800 - by which time I'd had the biggie.
Wonder what's causing the red belly?
