An interesting fishing session indeed on the River Severn

The second chub was bigger than the first and its throat was full of bread, which is what you want to see.

Feeding fish.

The next fish on was a real surprise, a perch in excess of two pounds that picked up the bread but shed the hook on the way to the net.

This was followed by a pike that hung on to the cage feeder as I reeled in before realising it wasn’t edible and letting go.
