I walked the stretch for about 400 metres before I chose a swim.
With high, steep banks, as well as finding a fishy looking spot, safety was also an important consideration.
I started getting taps and plucks from the off before I hit the first fish.
As you can see in the video, it’s not a big chub.
However, after this morning’s blank it was good to end a potential fish-less run before it got started.
