Chris Plumb


Kennet & Avon Canal, Thatcham


0700 - 1130


Cool and overcast start becoming bright and sunny. AT 5º - 8ºC


8 Perch:3lb 14oz(Another new PB :clap2: ), 2lb 6oz, 2lb 3oz, 2lb 2oz, 1lb 15oz. 1lb 14oz, 1lb 10oz (& a tiddler), 2 Chub, 1½lb & a chublet.


A strange session (!!) Both chub in the 1st couple of minutes then no bites for over an hour. Swim woke up at around 0830 after a couple of barges came through (Often the opposite happens). And I had slow but steady sport catching the ± 2lbers. Bites stopped by 1015 with the swim now in full sun so went exploring new swims for future trips. Did a bit of 'gardening' to create a swim to get access to a fallen tree on the other bank - and had a couple of casts before I left. Never expected a fish given the commotion and bright sunshine. Had the tiddler 1st cast and the biggie shortly after! A swim that I will return to!
