Not being shy, I fished a 1.75lb Avon with 12lb line (no point in fishing light when it's dark and id rather bully them on past unforeseen snags). After a couple of casts without success, I was just about to rebait with I got a twitch on the rod, I call it the 10 second warning signal. You can almost guarantee a chub will tap the rod round shortly after, and it did, a pleasing 3lb 6oz
Two casts later, and within seconds of the feeder hitting the deck, the rod twitch a few times. Clearly a chub knocking bait out the feeder and it was a short wait for the next rap round, this time at 3lb 8oz.
This was very quickly followed by a chub of 3lb 1oz....
No more fish followed, but I was happy with that. A mouse spent the evening by my side each the grass!
