well me and a few mates from college went and fished the river today after we finished. we had a very enjoyable day catching what we thought were rudd/roach/chub and i had a rainbow trout. we had the most simplest of tackle setup with some very very cheap telescopic rods each, a reel, 2 or 3 shot and a size 12 hook.

 

after a while my mate caught a massive chub about 4 1/2lb we reckon. only thing is we dont really know how to catch the bigguns more often as we were only catching small ones all day. the bigger ones just werent intersted, they just swam by out bread.

 

also at the end of the day we saw a ghost carp/mirror carp which often went up to our bread and just swam away, even thought it was eating other bread. why was it doing this?

 

we will be hitting the river again quite soon so any tips on catching more bigger fish as the one he caught was a really nice fish would be much appreciated, cheers.

always look on the bright side of life

Maybe the ;););) was there because it's illegal to fish for coarse fish in rivers in England and Wales until the season opens on June 16th !

Read your rod licence ????

 

Or do you not have one of those either ?

 

 

OK having just checked my rod licence they seem to have taken the season info off of it! there is however a bloody great section that says if you are unsure of your local bylaws ring 08708506506 to check!
