Nice spot to cast from. New Passage 10-11-13

Decided to head a little up channel today.
So went to a spot just up stream of the 
Second Severn Bridge.
Starting fishing at 08.30 I set a set of long and short

as the safer footing allows for better casting.

Plenty of rigs will be worked on to
repair them.

There were also some lovely people stopping
by for a chat.

WOW! That was a great session for

The weather is looking good at the moment 
after Monday so hopefully
a river trip later in the week,
unless my son decides to fish some where.
