  1. The Kennet flows seem to split at Newbury ,low flows west ,higher flows east ,which makes sense ,my day was bad , slippy angled banks were full of slugs/snails and nettles and my box fell in the river ,my banker swim ,which I had convinced myself would fish well when overcast produced my only fish a gudgeon. Have put a ruler in my box ,as I have nothing to weigh grammes with and hope to catch a 6" gudgeon and try to join the Soc'. Glad to see everyone else is doing much better

  3. Thank you Gentleman ,BW for the info about the society ,most splendid ,eccentric and as you say most TIC and Chris for the lovely article about our charismatic friend. Strange to see the society is about the Grand Union as although the Gudgeon is everywhere I always associate them with "gravel bottoms" . Will be trotting on the Kennet tomorrow ,low expectations ,catch wise ,high expectation on enjoyment. I do not fish lakes much ,or use the method ,preferring running or paternoster cage feeder etc but if I fished method ,with braid and a rigid tip , I would expect big fish ,would bump off or straighten hooks ,or to snap hook lengths........two ways to try ,fish mono main line for stretch ,or try using a bait runner function ...........please not at all based on my catching of carp ,light years behind you gents but on beach casting for bass ,build in some give or something must break.
