A couple of weekends ago I fished one of my favourite swims on the stretch of canal near Long Itchington.
Bites started pretty much straight away but they were very tentative and I was experiencing a lot of dropped takes which were probably from smaller fish. Typically, when I least expected it, I had a run on both rods at the same time but after a bit of rod and net juggling both Zed's were safely in the folds of mesh.
|then two come along at the same time!|
They weren't big fish but very welcome.
The commotion from the double hook-up quietened the swim a little and I only managed one more fish before it got dark, then all went quiet.
I think this deep spot must be a daytime hole that empties at night time when they all go on the prowl!
