November lead article after enjoying a magical session on this
neglected part of the upper Ouse.
After a Summer of
pole fishing it took me a few hours to dust off the ABU 506 and

The session started
well with small roach and dace every run through. Efforts to
pick up bigger fish failed and, after a while, even the small

pictures has resulted in the conclusion that it was a fish
stocked over a year ago at just 19lb. How's that for a
