    Can't say I blame you, John.
    I may be old, but I ain't dead yet.

    Date:.. Sunday 25/01/15
    Venue:... River Ribble

    Method:.. 2 rods both fished 15M out – Upstream Rod bread flake and feeder filled with liquidized bread.

    Results:... One Barbel 7lb-2oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… It was raining in the Dales but the river was looking good and I was getting bites until a snow melt flood pules came through. However, I did manage a 7lb-2oz barbel on crust, after advice from a mate who had a few chub on crust, but I lost a good chub, also on crust, at my feet when it dived into a snag that I didn't know was there. Hopefully that's the last of the snow, none on the hills now, but on the Tele they were talking about some really bad snow storms in New York that may be coming our way at the back end of this week!!!!

    Ho dear !*^% its snowing in the Dales as I type this

    Thanks again, John.

    It's been snowing on this side of the Pennines as well, today.

    Much warmer indoors.😀😁

    Date:.. Saturday 31/01/15
    Venue:... River Ribble
    Time fished:...17:00:00hrs 22:00hrs
    Weather conditions:... Clear sky then clouding over a wee bit until 21:30hrs when the sky cleared with a bright full moon. Wind variable from light breeze to strong gust.
    Water conditions:... EA River level at 04:30hrs @ NJR 0.7M.
    Air temperature:... 4.4C dropping to 2C by the end of the session.
    Water Temperature:... 3C
    Bait:... Crust & Halibut pellet wrapped in cheese paste
    Method:.. 2 rods both fished 15M out – Upstream Rod Crust and feeder filled with liquidised bread. Downstream Rod Halibut Pellet wrapped in Cheese Paste with PVA bags of micro-pellets, dried hemp and halibut ground bait. Loose fed both rods with corn & small halibut pellets.
    Results:... Six Chub to 4lb-10oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… There was snow on the hills in the Dales but clear on the lower Ribble again. It was cold but dry and OK out of the wind but the water temp was the lowest it's been of this winter at 3 deg C. The first chub out of six in the session was the largest and the quickest I've ever caught a chub on the Ribble, I'd just put the rod in the rest and picked up my second rod to thread up when it slammed over and stayed there until I could pick it up. The rest of the six chub came from 1lb; 2lb and 3lb year classes, which bode well for the future of chub fishing on the Ribble.

    Air temperature:... 8.2C dropping to 2.5C by the end of the session.
    Water Temperature:... 5.7C

    Results:... One Chub 4lb-1oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… Everything seemed very quiet, mirror like surface and beautiful reflected sunset. Just a few very tentative nudges and one good bite which resulted in a 4lb-1oz chub at 17:55hrs taken on crust. Even the nudges stopped when the moon came out. About 22:00hrs the resident otter and her pup swam though my swim chattering to each other as they disappeared down the river.

    Venue:... Ribble
    Time fished:...16:30:00hrs 21:30hrs
    Weather conditions:... Light damp breeze, overcast and no moon.
    Water conditions:... EA River level at 04:30hrs @ NJR 0.44M.
    Air temperature:... 6.7C dropping to 5C by the end of the session.
    Water Temperature:... 6.7C
    Bait:... Crust & Halibut pellet wrapped in cheese paste
    Method:.. 2 rods both fished 70M out – Upstream Rod Crust and feeder filled with liquidised bread. Downstream Rod Halibut Pellet wrapped in Cheese Paste and feeder filled with liquidised bread, changed as upstream rod after a couple of hours.
    Results:... Eight Chub; 2 x 5lb+ 2 x 4lb+ the rest in the 1lb,2lb & 3lb year class. Best chub 5lb-6.5oz
    Brief description of the session & remarks:… The water temp was up on the last few weeks and with the river level low I could cast with my feeders 70M to a known chub area. Again, with all year classes covered the futures looking bright on the Ribble. All bar one chub were caught on crust. The weather is looking very good for the rest of the week. I just need to convince our Lass to give me some credit on the brownie points.
