Pelamid Posted September 20, 2019 Report Share Posted September 20, 2019 (edited) I have lived in France for two years now, really enjoy the Lot valley east of Cahors. The last two summers have seen heatwave conditions and far less than usual rainfall. Hence it's been a struggle to get fish in gin clear water and when I have hooked up the better fish have broken me running through the heavy weed This last trip started that way, a fish on in the first 5 minutes. It instantly torpedoed 10 yds into a huge weed bed, even a tight drag was not going to stop it! Trace then parted under the weight of weed and the fish still motoring! I was targeting barbel, but this fish might easily have been a decent carp. Anyway, back to the fishing! Fishing buddy Alistair had a string of small barbel on sweetcorn. He also caught what I think is a bleak, if it is..... ......what a specimen! I persevered with a 20mm boilie and managed four fish between 3lb and 5.5lb. Good afternoons sport, hopefully the slightly cooler weather (30c) will be appreciated by the fish!
