When I got to the river I fished a few pegs upstream from the first peg you come to when you reach the river . Started on the tip bites first cast a roach followed by a few dace on maggot and caster. Then I changed to the meat, just kept feeding few pellets and hemp then the rod slammed over a chub about 3lbs. The next cast a barbel of about 6lbs, I stayed on the tip for a few more hours and had some cracking bites nearly ripping the rod in, I lost another good barbel just under the feet as I was putting the net to it. Then I switched to stick float 18ft rod and centerpin reel, caught steady for the rest of the day dace, roach and a few good perch and chublets.
