Hello everyone,

Yesterday, June 16 was the first day of the fishing season over here in England.

Myself and a friend, James set off at 5am for a day of lure fishing with Pike, Perch and chub in our sights.

Arriving at the first pool we felt confident that we should catch something by the end of the day.

It went off with a bang as both james and I got into fish on the first cast. James hooked into a good chub using a shallow diving plug, while i hooked into a small pike of a couple of kilos using a little rattle trap lure.

The next 30 minutes saw us hook and land a further 7 pike up to 4 kilograms before things quietened down and we decided to move on to the next spot.

Another friend, Rhys joined us on the way and was excited to hear of the early morning success. We hoped it would continue but the next pool on a separate river system failed to even produce a bite. usually a few fish would grace the net here so something didn't seem right.

Another move and Rhys bagged a couple of nice perch on a mepps spinner before hooking into a nice fish that turned out to be a PB chub of around 5 lb. This chub was the only fish from a weir pool that had produced 16 fish on a previous visit which left us trying to figure out why this was. Had they heard the fishing season had just opened? :D

we spent the rest of the day fishing all the weir pools we in the area but sport was sporadic with the odd perch and pike gracing the net. In one pool i saw two pike chase my spinner but unfortunately both turned away at the last minute. The second looked to be a good fish of 6-8kg which I would have been very happy to catch. :(

Later in the day we tried a bit of float fishing and caught some lovely little brown trout and a beautiful grayling, which is one of the scarcer species in the UK. So we ended up with five different species, Pike, Chub, Perch, Chub and Grayling and around 25 individual fish. We saw some lovely scenery throughout the day and had a great start to the season.

Hope you enjoy the photo's

All the best, tight lines, Scott
