5th Feb 2013

Its been a while since my last report, mainly due to the conditions , the river has been in a very bad state for months, it seemed like I would never get another bite, let alone a fish.
However this weekend I made the effort to get to the river, my first choice swims were a no go, the field I wanted to get to was under four feet of water,the banks are treacherous at the best of times here, so I decided to move lower down the fishery, a swim I have never fished before, and given the conditions any indication on the tip was about as much as I could have hoped for. However after an hour, there was just enough movement in the tip for a strike, which was succesful,you will see in the picture there was a lot of dying weed in front of me so I had to bully the fish into the net, 6lb 1oz was the reading on the scales,although not a really big one for the Stour, I was well pleased given the trial it had been of late, hope to report again soon.

cheers nairny
