Time on the river and a surprise catch

Today myself, JP and Allan set about fishing a local river, a change of scenery was very much appreciated. We arrived at day break and I set about setting my stall out - one Pike rod, one Tip rod and a ledger rod to hopefully pick up any passing Chub. I was the first to land a fish and what a surprise to see a Flounder putting a bend in my tip rod. They sure put up a good fight on light tackle. The rest of the day was pretty uneventful and the next and last fish of the day came to JP and a good fish it was, a Chub that tipped the scales at 4lb 3oz. I'll head back to this river maybe as soon as next week but I think I'll head to a different section.
