Who is fishing ?

Recommended Posts

Currently chubbing (and blanking) at a high and coloured river, if I'd known bit looked like this I'd have stayed at home!


And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Why would this be? We haven't had that much rain recently. I fished the Ock on Sunday expecting a nice clear river, it was anything but. The session turned into a recce with the occasional dabble, I doubt anything saw my maggots.

It's never a 'six', let's put it back

There was a lot of rain a couple of nights ago, and with the high water table it doesn't take much to push all the rivers up.

That's exactly why i'm not bothering until things improve. Even if the river was flowing at a nice level and colour etc the actual weather is pretty awfull round these parts...really heavy rain and hail showers with a varying wind that bites through the clothing !

Fingers crossed for a break from the wind and the rain and some decent weather soon !

It's been mild down south and I don't mind a bit of colour in the rivers.

 

Barbel time on the Lea :bleh:

If the river was just coloured up a bit that wouldn't be a problem Bob, but my local rivers look like hot chocolate with lots of debries coming down on and below the surface making the visability not more than several inches at best. Plus the nasty wind which kills the pleasure for me. A few days without rain and if the wind dropps off a little and i'll be out there myself :).

Barbel are still catchable round here also but they don't oblige anything like so easy as in the warmer months. Catching them on the float would be unusual at this time of year even if the conditions where more suited (round these parts that is).

Good Luck Tigger, I will have to get up there next year and have a fish with Alan and yourself ?

 

I don't mind it in full flood, mind I would be legering bit bit's of flavoured meat or boilies and back leading to keep the line out off the flow, but it's certainly not as enjoyable as trotting or touch legering for the species !!

A days fishing with Alan and yourself would be great Bob...anytime you fancy it just give Alan or myself a shout :).

 

I do enjoy a bit of legering Bob but my favourite method is trotting as I think you'll know. In the present conditions the better option would most deffinatly be legering.
