River Kennet - Thatcham
1330 - 1600
Overcast, sunny spells, one brief shower (17ºC)
2 Chub - a 2lber and a chublet. 9 Dace, 2 Grayling (!), 3 Brownies - biggest 1½lb.
Note to self - arriving at said venue at lunchtime on 16th June is not the smartest plan to secure 1st choice trotting swim (or 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th choice for that matter - yes the place was pretty busy!). So no 1st day barbel on the pin - though a brace of surprise grayling was some compensation - both around 12oz - along way from home - many many years since I caught them this far down the Kennet - wonder if they have been stocked?
