River Kennet - Nr Thatcham

 

1815 - 2315

 

Cool, clear and calm (despite being a very breezy day - the wind died down at dusk). 9ºC when I packed up but felt cooler. River low with a fair amount of leaf litter - autumn is here!

 

1 Barbel 6lb 10oz, 1 Chub 5lb 5oz.

 

Again no trotting rod - but still no blank - and I even had my target species (barbel) for a change - only my 3rd of the season. Both fish were caught in the first hour - just as well as I had a couple of otter sightings later on. It mooched downstream at around 2100 and did the return trip an hour later - thankfully just passing through, not stopping to look for a meal.

 

My biggest chub from this venue since 2/10/04. A long fairly lanky fish - be a fair bit heavier next March!
