The forum seems pretty void of any fishing reports lately so i'll post mine from yesterday. As predicted the weather was on the warm side but the river was calling so I decided to go and sail the f

The river was dropping off yesterday after some recent downpours so I decided to go and christen a new reel i'd recently got hold of (a kingpin Zeppelin). The reel's larger than what I normally use b

I haven't posted for a spell but thought i'd post todays results as it's the first time out this year :).

I had an hours trotting in the snow today, first bit of fishing of 2021.

As I drove to the river the car thermometer showed it was 0.5, so only just above freezing.  After arriving at the carpark the skies looked a bit iffy and as I started to walk to the river it began to snow, the snow progressed to heavy snow in the form of large flakes.  At the river, it looked awful, it was a dirty brown colour and was still up from the previous days snow melting.  I had no luck in the first three spots that I fished and decided to give one last spot a go before giving it up as a bad job.  

As I got to my last spot the snow ceased which made fishing more comfortable.

I fished overdepth and eased the float down through the swim and after several trotts through I started to catch some chub, with some quite decent ones amongst them. I think I had four fish in total which isn't a huge catch, but in the horrible conditions I was satisfied.

Tigger,

I WELCOME with baited breath your "reportable" sessions. A couple observations - - - is that bait artificial (not like you?) - and - for heavens sake a new net which must make you at least a dozen.

All the fish look in great shape, last one may be a bit roughed up

Hey Phone, hows it hangin bud :).

I've still been going out fishing and unusually I was catching barbel well into december on the float!  I say unusually because barbel sedom take a trotted bait during the winter months round these parts and prefer to take a legerd bait.

I didn't bother posting as without a picture or two of the fish it didn't seem worth it.

Anyhow, instead of using the link for forums I pressed ont the link for websites and the pictures appeared!

The bait was live red and white maggots, I use as many as I can fit on a size 14s superspade hook and it does the trick for me :).

No flies on you Phone, you are right about the net, I got it in october as a replacement for a trout net i'd got for a days grayling fishing and the mesh came appart, not a bad little net to be honest.

I only found out it was lockdown when I got back from my fishing today 😁.

Private place with no one but the farmer who owns it and myself with his permission to even walk there so away from anyone and no one can even see me. I'm lucky to have such a hideaway (of about 2 miles) to myself :).

maggots are to expensive to waste, so I used most of em today.....still got a few left though 🤔.
