The only thing in my house that loves fishing more than me is my dog. So with very low air pressure around, bright sun on the water all day I decide to go and fish late afternoon into the evening at the infamous Throop Fisheries at the very under fished River Stour beat 1 on the R.D.A.A ticket that has a public footpath for ramblers and dog walkers, hence I took him along.
Once I decided on my swim I bait dropped a few likely looking spots with garlic, hemp, Small Elips Pellet, Crushed Big Cheeze Dumbells all soaked with big glug of Hinders Fish Pro. Got the rest of my gear set up and went of for a walk down river to let the fish feed and find and study a few more swims for the future.
The longer you leave the pre baiting the better as far as I'm concerned. So I left if just over an hour before sticking the rods just before the sun went down with Big Cheeze Hook Baits wrapped in the same paste and a pva bag of the same goodies on a bolt rig as was fishing well into dark.
Proving pre baiting is worth while within 10 mins my rod down stream was into my 1st chub much to my delight. And with a further 3 fish caught in the dark, losing another made it a a great little session and one happy fished out dog.
Here is a selection of the fish.
