The Run Of Blanks Comes To An End On A Rising Severn

I’m not making excuses regarding the recent harsh weather but it has been tough on the angling front.

The run of blanks (four) came to an end today though, on the River Severn.

I was fishing for chub with a light leger (1/4 ounce bomb) and a chunk of bread on a size 6 hook.

Just off some overhanging willows, on a rising river, it wasn’t a chevin that hit the back of the landing net however, but a bream.

In all the years I’ve fished in the Hampton Loade area, it’s only the second of the species I’ve caught from the river there.

The other one was last year (2020) about 400 metres downstream.

I did some filming up to dark and you can watch that here.
