    Not quite, just above the knee in the deepest spots on the normally dry path round.

    Went yesterday on small river stretch,never fished before peg,I wanted to fish stick float for chub(the downstream gale made it iffy),anyway I set up a 5 no.4 stick and had a go,second trot a 3lb plus chevin,then the wind picked up a notch and it lashed down,float fishing became impracticable so I set up the Darent valley three quarters of a pound test curve on the feeder,christ what fun,had nine more chub between two and three and a half pounds,with the tip flying round and the rod bent double in the fight,a very pleasurable day indeed....

    Ok, I didn't realise that's what you meant.

    Although still pushing through the Colne was a different river Saturday. The peg that had been so productive last week didn’t produce a single bite? Despite my arrival at 9:30 I learnt that 2 other anglers had fished it earlier that morning. Hmmm?



    I moved upstream and tried 2 different spots, the second produced this small dace.



    That was it, I persisted until 4pm before leaving.

    Yesterday’s fixture on the Thames at Shillingford was off due to flooding so we had a knock up at Lakeside. The bottom lake.



    With the wind and rain straight in the face and no chance of putting a brolly up, I struggled.
    Slider with maggot got me a few bites but the tow made it difficult to present my bait effectively.
    Later, after midday, the wind subsided a bit and the sun came out.



    During the last 10 minutes of the match the roach switched on, too late for me.
    Had just 13oz....
