27.06.2011 This Bass finally took my sand eel pattern on the third cast. I’ve got to admit I thought I’d snagged the bottom and proceeded to pull and curse for about ten seconds. Then the bottom began to move and so did the rod and line as it tore off across the river. I finally got it under control and bought it to hand. It weighed in at 2.5lbs. The next 5 casts produced another two fish of 1lb and 1.5lb. An hour later I lost another good Bass right at the end of the ebb tide. I hope this is the start of a better season on the River Adur?
