On the river for a midnight start to get the new season underway, I also took my mini-jigging tackle with me as well.
The following morning, after packing away from the opening session, I walked the bank to spend some time casting around for a predator.
A couple of fishing sessions but just the one journey – Killing two birds with one stone indeed. It’s about thinking and planning in order to maximise your time.
There’s more in the video below, including footage of the river itself. I was on a Kinver Freeliners Angling Club stretch.
It’s not day ticket, strictly members only, but you can enquire about membership via the contact details on the club’s website home page.
