Had a few hours one evening last week, conditions seemed ideal, nice temp, coloured water. I fished pellet with soaked pellet in a feeder. The first peg produced nothing, so I tried two or three others in search of the hoped for barbel.
In the last leg, plenty of chub were trying to run with the bait but not hooking. I wrapped it in paste and that did the trick, nothing special but it avoided a blank.
Then I absolutely p'd it down so I ran for the car having got a soaking!
Pictures on phone so not the best
