Avon @ Wasperton - 16.06.11

Been eager to get on the bank, not been fishing for over 5 weeks haven't really had the time, decided to give the top meadow at Wasperton a go, was only planning a couple of hours afterword, from 8.30pm till 10.30pm. Always seems an anticlimax when fishing the first day of the season as I always have high hope and then don't do any good. Got to the oak tree at Wasperton to discover 5 cars there, so that's the willow pegs out then :) My Jag doesn’t like grass so I knew I had to do some walking to find a peg. Spoke to a few people on the top meadow, the swim I always favour I realised afterwards, Keith Jobling was residing. Been there since midday and had a Chub?

As I'm also a BAA member I settled into a swim a few pegs down from the end of the Leamington stretch. I had some success on homemade paste in the past, a mixture of fishmeal, ground halibut and also some hemp for added attraction. Always use a big lump of it moulded around a couple of small pellets. Not much happened to the rod tip, had a couple of sharp Chub knocks but sadly no takers. Was getting a bit chilly when I left, so nice to be out though.
