After a drink and some tactical planning, we fell back on the town centre stretch as the evening drew close. Here much larger fish soon started to rise. My pound and half Grayling a good start, followed by a three pound Rainbow - both to a slightly waterlogged sedge tied by Como. Others in the party, Como, Bone, Glen and co all had good fish. Trug hooked a small whale which proceeded to run to the other bank with cries of " I've only got a 2lb leader " echoing across the river. Too late though - this monster, estimated by Trug at 10 lbs was free and his leader still intact !!! I can vouch for these sizes - I had two takes which straightened out my hooks on 5lb flouro - either big fish or cheap hooks. I'll never know for sure.
