27/08/20:  6/01

20/08/20:  2/11, 6/00 - the second fish, exactly what one would expect; felt like I'd hooked the bottom, then the inevitable hammering runs and head-shaking. Totally brutal and uncompromising, and took what seemed an age before it showed even the slightest indication of tiring - a proper 'tank'.

16/07/20:  5/02

14/07/20:  1/11

13/07/20:  3/00 - didn't get it wrapped round the big post, didn't get it caught in the bladder wrack, didn't cut the line on the barnacle-encrusted stonework, and after a few attempts, in no way assisted by the fish itself, got it in the net. Sweet.

10/07/20:  2/08 golden-grey, another shallow-water missile. Remembered thinking, 'this one feels a bit odd...'

22/06/20:  2/02, 2/09

16/06/20:  4/03 - way down a narrow and claustrophobic channel, and not at all a sensible proposition. Evidently, we don't do 'sensible'....

15/06/20:  1/13

09/06/20:  2/00 - went off like a moderately-sized torpedo (and a much larger bass) in about twelve inches of water, and didn't stop, for a while. Then the thumping started... Must've fed on groundbait with a high Weetabix content - magic.

21/05/20:  1/12, 3/09, 3/02 - a very good day, marred only by the unwanted sight of an Emperor Turd Eagle noshing on two unfortunate Coot chicks...

13/05/20:  2/06 - great to be off the mark in 2020, after the recent and continuing grimness.
