As always, you can follow the session via the video below. I also mention water temperature in there, and in particular, the importance of trend.
On this occasion, although the air definitely has a chill to it at the moment, the water is still well into double-figures – 13.8C to be precise.
That’s my first reading of the autumn and there’ll be more to come. It’s an important factor at this time of the year.
The rod I fished with was a 12’ Greys Prodigy TX and the reel was a Shimano DL2500FA, loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon.
Joined by a loop-to-loop knot, there was a 12” length of Ultra Virage fluorocarbon 2.5lb line to a Drennan Super Specialist size 14 hook.
The float was a Drennan 3BB crystal waggler. I fished with double maggot on the hook over brown crumb / loose maggots.
