21 January

Chris Plumb


River Kennet - Brimpton


0930 - 1330


Cold & Sunny. AT -5º -> +3ºC. WT 5.3ºC. River low and clear - very low for mid January.


5 Chub: 5lb 4oz, 4lb 15oz, 4lb 5oz, 4lb 0oz, 3lb 2oz. 4 Grayling - all over 10oz with 2 over 1lb - best 1lb 3oz. 2 Brownies - to 2lb+.


Blimey! Didn't expect that! Best haul from here in over a decade. A trip more in hope than expectation given the conditions - bites at a premium but when they came it resulted in a quality fish. Fished 3 swims in total - not a touch from the first one so chased the maggots downstream and had 4 of the 5 chub from the second swim 40m below where I started. Size of the grayling a real surprise too! All fish on trotted maggot.


Biggest 2 chub.




Nearly 5!
