First one from the Kennet

Post by Alchemist » Wed Jun 22, 2016 11:04 pm

My first barbel from the Kennet. This one took a liking to my legered breadflake and it's also my first on my recently acquired 10ft Marco Arun. Quite impressed with this rod, sensitive tip with plenty of power lower down. It was a tight swim with overhanging trees and the old rod performed admirably.

Splendid, Sir.
