I had intended to fish myself, but it didn't really pan out that way as fishing with an excitable 11 year old is a bit of a full on experience! Apart from me having to continuously re-bait, spray maggots, untangle knots and retrieve hooks from bankside vegetation, he had a bite a cast. Mini perch followed mini perch, with the occasional mini rudd thrown in for variety. It was mid-afternoon before the float buried and he found himself attached to something more substantial, a nice little common carp.
Two more followed before we had to pack up. A good day for the lad, but don't know where those "millions" of tench got to!
