Anyone had their rod snapped playing a fish recently?
I read a report from a pike angler who witnessed someone on the far bank hook into a salmon when their rod snapped. He managed to play the fish and unhook it in the water and release. He estimated to be similar in size to the 16lb pike he'd just landed.

Heard a report that a fish of around 18lb was taken at Winkton yesterday.
Yup, that was me. After two years of blanks somehow things have changed for the good and I've had four fish this season. Three kelts of 11, 11 and 13 and a fine springer on Tuesday at 21 pounds. I'm not doing anything very different to the last two seasons, but that's salmon for you...

Fished a full day on Sat, very quiet and river pretty low for early March... Water looking good, lets hope a few more will be coming into the system soon.
It looks like there are 10 days of rain and Atlantic weather coming which should push the river back up and set better levels for spring; may also encourage a bunch of fish to move up.
