River Kennet, Nr Thatcham
1930 - 2315
Cool, overcast some light drizzle at times - more like October than mid-July!
Cue another Rusty faux headline!!! Shocked on 2 counts when I arrived. The first was not being able to even get in the car park - full of anglers cars. And the second was the state of the river - really coloured up and tanking through - more like mid-winter condition. I did consider turning around and going elsewhere - a thought that stayed with me all evening as I looked at a stationary quiver tip. No bites, not even a hint of one - or even a crayfish - in fact didn't even need to change my hair-rigged pellet for the entire time I was on the bank...
