The fish are like yo-yos at the moment
Yearning for some warm weather..
The stronger that wind, the harder it is..
Spring - so John looks for some pussy
Martin tries to tackle the new T3 on the Test.
More rubbish and a few trout!
The trout are feeding in the West Country!
John visits a couple of commercial fisheries and bags up.
Sometimes, when the fishing's not worth the effort, it's worth clearing away the rubbish from last winters floods.
Ooops - here's one I prepared earlier!
At last - some roach.
Chew starts with a bang!
Clearing rubbish was the precursor to a few good trout.
When it all slots neatly together...
The score of big chub keeps rising
John finds some big carp willing to feed as the winter makes an exit
The chub hunt continues on the river Bain..

When chubbing, you are never too old to learn..
With big pike up for grabs, John and Gary head for the river
Looking for a 30lb Thames pike and awaiting a break in the cold snap for a carp trip, John and Gary find a pike hot-spot.
Better late than never!

The ice is gone so John gets back to the carp
Martin James found a refreshing way to spend the Christmas period - he went chubbing!

In true Xmas spirit, John pulls a rabbit out of the hat. Or was it a carp?
