I do like to be beside the river

My first proper session of the new season saw me armed with half a gallon of maggots and a couple of bags of hemp wandering down to the Warwickshire Avon. No targets had been set just a pleasure session capturing whatever came along in the glorious summer weather we have been enjoying of late. The wildlife was abundant. Spooked a Muntjac on the way to the river. Damselflies flitted about all over the place. An Egret worked the shallow water for his lunch and the fish were in a real feeding mood.

I lost count of the numbers of Roach, Dace and Chub that I landed. No monsters amongst them but a really enjoyable day none the less. It certainly beat sitting by a muddy puddle pulling in Carp with deformed mouths all day. Stunning scenery, beautiful wildlife and fish galore.
What could be better?


  1. Joe,
    Are you still considering clients for your guiding services?
    I would be interested if you are.

    1. Just seen your comment John, will text you

  2. Don't bother, when I go with him he is the one that ends up catching the bigger fish.

  3. That's a lovely looking but clearly functional float. Do you simply double rubber or do you have an eye on the bottom of the stem?
