Only a couple of spare hours in the whole of this week so I grabbed a rod, a net, a few bits and a tin of luncheon meat and headed for the river. The weather was pretty dire, windy and wet but I managed to catch a Chub and lose a Barbel.
At 3lb 6oz it wasn't the biggest I have ever caught but very welcome. The Barbel I lost managed to transfer the hook into weed which really should not be there at this time of year. We have certainly had some strange weather this year!
