not the angler!!
Saturday gave me Phil and Mike a chance to
once I had recovered from the drive
worth the effort. Phil often says I have
a knowledge of Chub, I take that as a
complement, because they are spooky
fish and even though they " as the name
suggests" have a reputation for being
greedy they can take some fooling at
several reasons. The first it makes me more
appreciative of the good rivers we have close
to home. The second is that on my first visit
I can take a 5lb Chub on the float, my as I
called it in the last post " Faith" in spotting
a decent swim improves on each visit to a
new river. I think that the skill is only acquired
after years on or in the water, I truly hope I
have the time to learn much much more.
My thoughts as I left seemed to be
"It's a long way"
"Is it worth it?"
Today I sort of think another visit with a
longer time to spend would be nice. After
all a few Chub one of 5lb on the first visit
in low water may just show the potential.
