Wasperton - 19.11.11

Fished just upstream of the S Bend, river was gin clear again. One rod with luncheon meat and other sprat fished in the margin. Within a few minutes of putting the sprat in I had a small jack on the bank, greedy little begger.

Missed a couple of runs too, for some reason didn't connect, and look what one of them did to the little sprat :)

I was trying out some of the new Grey's bait anchors to hold the luncheon meat on, seemed to work pretty well to retain the meat on the business end but the cheeky Chub were on a smash and grab mission as I was having some of the most violent indications on the rod tip but not long enough to strike. I was using a running rig so maybe next time I'll go semi-fixed with the hook buried in the hook instead. A couple of other anglers just downstream from me were fishing stick and maggot and when I left, hadn't even had a bite.

Can we have some more rain please, the river needs it.

    Agree with you Mick,we could really do with some serious rainfall,but sadly it doesn't look likely to be forthcoming anytime soon and some of the rivers are in a poor state because of it.
