Since losing a fish last week on a soft 4play lure and then subsequently losing the lure afterwaeds, I had tried to buy a new set of them off eBay. The item didn't arrive though as the seller had run out of stock ! brilliant, and I'm still waiting for a set of the smaller 9.5cm lures to arrive that he offered me instead. This was from a top rated seller too, I've only ever fell foul of a scam once before on eBay in nearly 10 years so we'll see how this one pans out !
I headed out with a bucket of roach, chub and sprats to try and cutting a long story short I caught just the one Jack again (covered in leeches) on a small chublet twitched past a line of overhanging branches - in what were fast becoming difficult conditions with the river colouring up quickly as it rose steadily with the persistent rain over the last 24hrs or so.
