Chris Plumb


River Kennet & Carrier - Marsh Benham

0745 - 1315

Cool, calm & cloudy. AT 1º - 3ºC. River quite full - though somewhat surprisingly (and contradictory!) the carrier was on the low side.

4 Chub; 4lb 10oz, 3lb 1oz, 2lb 2oz and a chublet. 18 Roach - few of any size bar one which went 12oz. 4 Dace, 1 Perch, 8 Brownies - 2½ - 3½lb & 2 Rainbows 2½lb & 4+lb.

Pleasant morning's trotting - chub as ever were the target - though most of my 'banker' swims were full of trout. Did eventually find a swim where the chub got a look in and had all 3 decent fish in quick succession before the bully boy brownies muscled in again!

Well played, Chris. A fine return. Trout for tea again? I presume you are maggoting for these. I drew a blank (not even a bite) in a pinched few hours at Bellwood on Friday - I should listen to your 'no lakes after October' rule, but with the air pressure really low I thought I might at least get a bite. Funny enough, fish were moving in the margins and some healthy bubbling, but would not be cajoled. I took a few mackerel strips to Enbourne yesterday afternoon for a 9lb pike and one another which I felt was a good return. Not fished Speen Moors yet - might buy some maggies and have a crack next weekend.

I had a go at a can of sweetcorn with red food dye the other week - but only managed to turn it pink!
