Plough AS. 16:30 - 19:30

Couldn't get to my favourite swim on the bracs as the river was just over the bank from Monday's rain. I did try, but had to retreat as was nearing a booty whilst wading.

Went downstream (flats) for the first time. Fished a quiver tip with a 'pin in the steady, high, and coloured water; in-line feeder with red maggot to 6lb hooklength and 14 hook.

Saw a couple of fish rise, looked Pikey, but no bites. Only gave it an hour or two. It's cold. 4c on the gauge upon arrival this afternoon. Very light rain set in around 18:30.

A Guiness and an open fire at The Malt Shovel warmed me up. Roll on summer.
