Left work early on lovely summers afternoon. Met up with Rich and fished Hampshire Avon at Deanery Meadows. A beautiful stretch of river in the shadow of Salisbury Cathedral. We both fished nymph under the dry. Rich hooked a clonker of Chub under some Willows on the far bank. It was easily in the 4lb range and tested is light tackle to the limit. I was mainly catching small Dace on the dry. I finally hooked into a good sized Chub of around 2lb on the dry taken from under some Chestnut trees on the far bank. Rich proceeded to catch several more Chub in the 2-3lb range. Trout noticeable by their abscence. A lovely late afternoon/evenings fishing easily worth the hours trip from Bristol.
