The Brook - 03.03.13

I had a night out with my mate Simon Friday and he lives yards from the Stour where he live in Honington just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon, the plan was to fish in the morning to sort the hangover out but didn't sadly never happened. With a fuzzy head an English breakfast happened instead and I decided to fish Sunday, and yes you've guessed it, I ended up at Hampton Lucy Brook.

Spring is only the way by the looks of it and cannot come soon enough, I've already caught a 5lb Chub from here this season and I wanted to try and catch another one. They do average a decent size on this stretch of the Avon but where are the smaller ones, as I cannot catch them   ?

River was low and clear and tried a few swims before getting some indications on the rod tip, hair-rigged bread discs really do seem to work well and wasn't long before I had a decent Chub in the net, not worth weighing but looked around 3.5 pound.

I'm glad the close season is nearly upon us, hopefully the rivers can recover after the amount of floodwater we have had and it was all getting very samey for me. The Shanghai AA matches are due to start up again so and I'm going to give Snitterfield reservoir more of a go as I feel it has potential for some big fish.
