Is it ever too cold to catch?
I have been very surprised how well the river is fishing at the moment. Despite it hiting minus 7 degrees last night and the river solid ice in places still managed to get chub competing for bread missing two bites and landing two of 4lb1oz and 4lb12oz at light was failing.
I have had three good sessions this week with similar results. The strange thing is, there are swims that usually 'banker' swims - not a touch. it seems if you can find a swim with a few fish in them, their competitive instincts take over!
To be fair, I went out this afternoon for a few hours just to experience the cold weather......... I still find it hard to imagine why this week has been so productive in context of the big freeze weather....
Has anyone else found this weather productive?
