I was out there 0900-1430 but to no avail.
Two rods – legered smelt and legered sardine in a ruby-dubby fed area elicited not a single flicker of the line even due to an interested chub, never mind a beep of the alarm. Even injecting the sardine with lamprey oil and perforating its stomach with a baiting needle and adding a pop-up ball to the smelt to raise it 12” from the bottom halfway through the session had any effects whatsoever.
But it was a pleasant day to be out – a few strange 1-2 minute light showers from small passing grey clouds were the only interruption to an otherwise calm, bright and relatively warm day with blue skies and light white whispy clouds.
I did think of getting the lure rod for a short session at the end but decided against as I’m intending to do a lure session over the weekend on a canal anyway and thought I’d save myself for that.
