Fast water is a must in these low conditions.
Several reasons better oxygen levels, meaning
more fish and in better condition once landed.
It also makes for an exciting fast fight on the rod.
Mike had wanted a Barbel and with not another
angler in sight we went on and had a cracking
evenings sport. Mike was set up in a flash and
his first run brought a Chub over 4lb and in
followed. I left Mike to enjoy his fishing
and explored a little. I was soon glad I did
for I found some great float water and a string
of Chub all over 3lb and a couple pushing 5lb.
The best fish was a great Dace which I lost at
died. So another bit of water which I had noted
half an hour brought me a decent Grayling, a good
Chub and another Barbel. Another great outing.
