I am still persevering with the river, after seeing the carp in this area 3 or 4 times on the bounce. I now should be after the barbel, but I just love these river carp, big or small it doesn’t matter. I am still having a good look around the area, so am not completely focused on the carp. I have not seen any barbel yet, but I have seen a couple of large salmon and some good chub.
No change in the swim or spots, as I put a bit of bait in before I left the last time. I was in the hope of getting them feeding confidently. I don’t think anyone else has fished here, which is good to know.
I have been here for two hours and there is no signs of the carp. I am hoping the sun may bring them out, just to confirm there are still in the area. They could of easily moved on, mind you they have plenty of weed to hide in.
You just never know.
I finally spotted one of the common carp drifting through the reed’s and will only an hour and a bit left before it’s time to run and collect the kid’s. I will have my fingers crossed that the carp are in a feeding mood now.
I stayed for as long as possible, unfortunately no joy.
Till next time
