Kennet & Avon Canal - Woolhampton

0615 - 0945

Mild (13ºC) with an increasingly strong breeze (storm Aiden approaching)

9 Perch: All, bar one, over 8oz with a couple pushing a lb. Still searching for the bigger ones!

Quick session before the rains arrived (started pishing down just as I got back to the car!). One of the advantages of the clocks going back is there's a bit longer to fish before the barges start up and whilst the first one came through at 0830 again - there wasn't the same traffic as last Saturday. This was a bit of an exploratory session - tried around a dozen new swims - though most fish came from last year's 'hotspots'.

Well played, Chris. The threatened winds postponed my heading for Brimpton for a second consecutive Saturday morning. Chose Dobson's last week for a single 2oz perch. This week was Willows, I was the only one in the car park when I arrived at 7, and still the only one when I left, wind-battered at 11. One missed bite after 10 mins then nothing. Pinched a bonus 90 mins at Hambridge on Sunday...and blanked. Didn't think it was possible to blank at Hambridge!  Do us a favour, Chris, you're on good terms with the fishing gods - put in a good word for me next time!
