River Kennet - Nr Thatcham
1900 - 2330
Warm and overcast 19º ->17ºC. Shirtsleeves all eveing! River in good flow with some colour and little debris.
3 Barbel (6lb 13oz, 5lb 6oz, 4¼lb)
All fish caught between 2200 - 2230. No bites before or after ! Privileged to witness at very close quarters a Barn Owl hunting on the opposite bank then swooping over to 'quarter' the field behind me. Awesome sight - and more than made up for the 3 biteless hours. (1st sighting was shortly after arriving).
