I had the last hour of daylight on the river near the city cente. A cold wind meant that there were few fish rising, but i still caught a perch on a copper headed nymph and a small chub on a black Klinkhammer.
It seems as though trout are scarce this far downstream so am going to stop fishing this area until June the 16th when the coarse season re-opens.
A tube of Aquasure should sort out my waders, so maybe i might have the last hour tomorrow evening much further upstream There are a few likely swims at the back of my house which i havent fished since last summer and as trout are the predominant species up here I won’t feel so guilty if I catch any coarse fish.
