 After the waters around Kent being coloured for the past 2 weeks it was nice to arrive at the Mark at HT to find the colour acceptable. What wasn't acceptable was the bright sunshine.  Killed it dead, not a take, but a 15lb plus Salmon leapt clear of the water 30 yards in front of me, giving me unrealistic expectations for a while.

4 Hours after HT and walking back to the car I left the rod up and waders on, something I never usually do as its a long long walk. With the light fading and the sea settled I thought I'd have a couple of chucks with a Sammy. 5 casts and 2 schoolies later a blank was saved. Walking on 30 yards to try some new water, on the 2nd cast and for the first time, the clutch on the reel was finally tested. The Rareium and Fish Dorset rod did everything they said they would, and I was suprised how quickly I had the fish beaten, a PB on the plug for me, 6lb 1oz, and off the top.   Does it get any better.............

  1. Great PB Dave.
    The bigger fish should start to show come autumn, now there's another target!
