Hi, I'm new on here, so this is first post. Last night we were fishing the Trent at gunthorpe for Barbel. No barbel showing but caught this and a few chubb and Roach. not sure if If I'm allowed to post photos , but unsure of the species, looks like may be Chubb even considered Common carp but the shape of the mouth seems to resemble neither. Hey ho will just have to put it down as unsure. oops was going to attach picture but don't think I can do this Cheers Trev
I must confess I spent nearly all of the last river season caught up with cycling training ... until with a week to go before the end of the season I ventured out to the River Avon near Salisbury... and how I missed it... And whilst I,caught bigger fish on the day, the 11 ounce dace, a new personal best, was the most rewarding. I've decided to get back onto the river bank again next season and target a new dace personal best. I believe some of the people that use this site - Chris Plumb take a bow - have caught dace over a pound. Respect. Whilst some anglers disdain dace, they surely are the smallest but pluckiest fish species that anglers enjoy catching. I don't expect any details on swims. LOL! But any advice on which stretches of southern rivers throw up good specimens and tips on tactics would be appreciated. I tend to use trotted double red maggot with a fixed spool reel. Way to go?
