With the drought continuing it was off again to the lower sections of the stream where the
chubs where happily roaming in the current for food.
I have never seen so many large chub in there so plus side of the low water is that it has
given me insights in where the fish are holding up.
By pure coincidence I came across a whole lot of fish at a bridge and curiously caught my
first ever bleak from the stream, maybe these fish ladders along the larger weirs work
Although I spotted many large chub as usual the small tiddlers always beat them to the fly
first. One of my friends however gave me a tip how to get the big ones namely by using a
hopper fly so that is what I am planning to do on the next outing.
