Easy when it comes together though.
Since purchasing my Farnham ticket I have only managed 1 trip out in search of Tench, so a couple of days ago I thought I'd head down to one the rivers on the ticket in search of Barbel and Chub using my preferred tactic, rolling. When I arrived early on it was clear that it wasn't going to be easy as the river was seriously overgrown and the water was barely pushing so my plan was straight out the window unless I walked the banks and find the water I wanted. Miles of walking searching out water proved to be fruitless for the most part and some bits looked so picturesque but in places it was only 4-6ft wide instead of 20+, it was that bad I continued past some that looked good but just couldn't bring myself to cast a bait in.
|Beautiful but almost unfishable for large swathes.|
|My first Loddon Chub of 5lb 9oz.|
|Banking yet another Rudd on Frensham.|
|Stunning creatures to watch. One of a dozen on the hunt.|
Another trip before that proved successful too as I had a quick session on the trot and again I was spot on the money with another couple of Barbel to roughly 6.8 along with a Chub around 3lb.
|Very rare snail, that liked my rod.|
|Perfect rolling water.|
