Apologies for not replying of late. I've been preoccupied with chub and grayling!! Some great catches above, well done.

I knew that this morning was my window of opportunity, the one I've been waiting for since I finished work for Xmas. The rivers are up and down like a yoyo, and with further flood water currently piling it's way down the wild river, I had to get out. The fact that gale force winds and torrential rain coincided with it didn't help!

Arriving in dark and parking up, I had a bad start with car becoming stuck, which I had to rock out, but eventually after a fair walk, I slid my way down the bank into my peg. Float ledger fished smelt, my favourite tactic, was the way forward, balanced so that any movement on the bait would be indicated. I flicked out to some slack water adjacent heavy flow, alongside a nice crease, and waited for my chance. Ten minutes later, the float moved away before stopping. I held the rod, heart thumping, and waited. It seemed like forever, but in reality about thirty seconds later, the float laid flat, bobbed, and started moving away. I held the rod, waited for the thump thump of a fish, and hit it. All hell broke lose, the fish dictated everything, and using braid I could feel every movement. She went on run after run and It took a lot of coaxing, but eventually I'd tired her and she came over the arms of the net. A beast of 24lb 13oz.

There's very little that's beats river piking in winter. Once returned, I sat in the rain, wishing I had a cigar and a whiskey, with a grin on my face. A great way to see off 2013

(Ps, I am now sat having a celebratory whiskey!).

15 fish haul......

Special day again. Returned to my private trout lake, not fished it for a number of weeks and basically hit it perfectly.

everything caught was on half baits, wind assisted for a 60yrd chuck towards the island produced some good fish. Margins again played there part (never ignore them)

fished 3 rods as i normally do, one was a pencil float setup and the other 2 where straight leads as i needed the distance. Chest waders here are very important, my setup was around 5/6yrds in the water. Casting to tight area and around over hanging trees means i had to wade out a good 10/15yrds before i started to sink [xx(][xx(]

from the 1st put in, fish started to come regular, all to half macks, herring or sardine, they just wouldnt touch full baits [:0][:0]

soon i was down to 2 rods as my spool broke, gutted to say the least, but to be fair, i didnt get a fish on this rod.

landed 15 fish to 19lb 4oz and lost 4. The smallest being 4lb 5oz. The 15 fish haul consisted of 10 x doubles and 5 x singles.

few pictures below of some lovely fish [Smile][Smile][Smile]

19lb 4oz:

little water shot returning her safely:
