Radcot and Lechlade

Peg 4 Radcot upstream
11lb 15oz
2nd in section
38 fished
5th overall

I was a little concerned about today's match as I haven't fished the River for two years!!!  
As almost allways really lucky with the drawbag, drew end peg Radcot upstream.  Peg 4. An attractive peg, but felt it was very clear.
I decided to fish four metres with chopped worm and groundbait and then 9 metres with groundbait dead pinkies bit of caster and hemp.
Also chop worm a 16 metres just just before the weed.  It was only 4 foot, felt I may not catch and didn't.

The gear I set up is a Colmic Stream float, which is a very versatile float.  So strong, I use it mainly for choppie on Upper Thames or baggin on the ballin in line when it's got some extra water on the river.
