The open season/weekend on the river Wid saw a few new members trying this delightful stretch of water. Although river levels were low – following weeks with no rain – everyone managed to find a suitable swim. Big thanks to my bailiff Barry for his efforts scything nettles and cutting weeds. Red maggot scored but if the minnows got too much a switch to bigger baits worm, luncheon meat or sweetcorn proved productive.
Dace, chub, roach and perch are the prevalent species, for bigger fish try the deeper darker pools.

I fished in the car park swim next to the reeds and fished a bout 4 rod length out and I used a bottom bait with a tip off on a helicopter rig
