As a Leicester lad the Wreake was my boyhood river-small river roving is still my favourite method. Which bit(s) of the Wreake are you fishing Pete? My haunts were around Hoby/Brookby.Another trip to the Wreake this morning under cloudy skies. Walking across the fields the sun burst through and a mist descended for about 10 minutes. A buzzard flapped through the mist having been walking the field and there was a white egret on the river too.
Nothing doing in yesterdays successful swim, tried three different swims but the river had dropped about a foot overnight but was now rising again slowly seemed devoid of fish. Eventually it was back to the car and drive about half a mile and try a swim near to where I found the scales yesterday.
Managed to get two chub to 1lb 2oz on legered flake, saved a blank.
