At last a fish................

After a number of 1-2 hr sessions on canals & rivers near home and work i was getting somewhat dispondant especially after a session on the Basingstoke canal before work where i discovered the carcass of my target pike around 7lb - been filletted by someone.

I kept persevering and on a 1hr trotting session on the Kennet town centre stretch before work i managed to get a good bite on maggotts and low and behold....... a chub.

Its all about finding the fish in winter - something i have not managed to do too well of late

Hopefully things will pick up from here
