13th March Lacock

Had to leave the house today. Me and the wife are not speaking again! She asked last night what was on TV, I said the same as last week, she said what do you mean, I said “dust”.

I pulled into the Red Lion car park in Lacock at 4pm for a 2hr go with the float rod.

I had met Kevin and Nigel on the way to the swim, they were just finishing for the day. They too had been trotting but had only small fish to show for their efforts. I think they were just leaving as things should have been picking up.

The sky was¬†just brilliant sunshine with a warm breeze blowing from the north east. I was using 5 lb line staright through with a size 18 hook and 2 maggots (red). The object was to feed the swim for 30 mins before fishing, this gets the chub really going and it’s normal to connect with the first trot through.

Wide sweeping bend

I was fishing an area with some tree and bush branches just entering the rivers edge, which was sure to hold some chub. The secret of this success is feeding for 30 mins before fishing and it paid off. I caught 2 4lb chub, lots of smaller ones. Some of the roach were nearer 12oz and the dace about 6oz. It’s a great place to fish. Bites were very confident with the float being pulled under savagely. The important part about feeding this swim is that the chub have very little time to¬†inspect the bait as it travels through the swim.

I lost one very large fish where I just couldn’t stop it from entering the snag. Not very often this happens. Well at 6.15pm the light was fading fast and it was time to finish. So another good catch of chub and bits in 2 hrs.
