Longest day of summer 21-6-15

Well I finally got my river campaign under way last night.I arrived at the river at about 6-45 pm,had a quick look around and decided to fish a peg downstream I hadn't fished for a while.I set up and fished a bomb and a bag,pellet on one rod,boilie on the other.I was quite suprised at how windy it had become,I decided to work the peg and cast every 20 mins.I had two raps on the pellet rod and then a good pull,to find I'd connected with a fish,then it was off.
at 8-45 after fishing in that peg with no more action I moved downstream,I set up and cast out,the wind had died down now,I left both rods for about 30 mins ,I decided to make a change and wrap paste around my baits,fresh bag and back out.It took about 15 minutes before my left hand rod arched over and all hell broke loose,I knew this was a good fish,going on surging runs in the shallow water of the river,at the second attempt she slid over the net and she was mine.I looked in the net and for a minute I thought it was a double.
9.5 happy days,not a double but a good start..............
