I’ve been keeping an eye on the River Severn levels this year, as I’ve been wanting to return for a chub session.
Now that the river has been falling for a while, it was time to get back on there today.
Fishing just off a bed of willows, although the water temperature was low, everything looked good.
The stretch I’ve been on has been kind to me over the years in terms of quality but it’s never been a quantity venue.
That actually suits me, although today it meant I blanked without even a tap on the rod.
There’s always tomorrow…
Tackle was a Fox Barbel Special 11’ rod and an Okuma Zeon reel.
The 6lb Maxima Chameleon went straight through.
The six-inch hook-length was created by a size 6 Dinsmores shot and a 5mm ESP bead.
A Drennan Super Specialist size 6 hook and a 1/4 ounce bomb completed the set-up.
