Middle Kennet Weirpool - Marsh Benham
0600 - 1200
Hot and sultry - 19º -> 27ºC. River a little on the low side but not as bad as it can be in August!
12 Chub: 6 over lb, best 2 both went 4lb 3oz (different fish) - nice to see some small ones. 3 Bream; 2¾ to just under 4lb. 30 Dace. 20+ Roach. 4 Bleak. 1 Brown Trout - 6lb 1oz (!!) & 2 Rainbows of 2½ & 3½lbs.
Cracking morning's trotting - though the big brownie was on ledgered meat and had me convinced I was into a barbel for a few minutes!
Don't usually take pics of troot - usually try to avoid them - but this was one impressive spottie.
And Rusty will be pleased to see I've done some 'gardening'...
Bream pic (makes a change from Chub), this was the biggest - all 3 fought surprisingly hard in the flow!
