Date fished 28/01/2023
8am until 1pm
Rupert, Martha and I went fishing, together! What's not to like?
I took them to the swim I fished earlier in the week, I was sure we could catch some grayling from there, if the trout stayed out the way.
We shared a float rod and a ledger rod. Float for the grayling and ledger for chub, but not in this swim. Rupe was up first. He cast as I fired in maggots. He has not trotted before and was soon into the rhythm and getting bites. It wasn't long before he connected and his first grayling is pictured above!Martha was soon wanting a go, they swapped over and she had the helm. The float buried and she was in. This was no grayling though and the fish was off, definitely a trout. The next swap and Rupe hooked and landed a trout. Martha told me " you just unhook it in water and not take pictures" she must read this blog or be the trout police!!??
|Thanks Martha, we have heads!

|Swap the rod for a doughnut!?
No chub here so we moved on to another swim. It was slightly drizzling and although the hand warmers were working well, some cold feet were being described.
