Further on disturbed water. Minnows scattering to survive Asp or Chub attacks, I head towards the action. Casting had to be precise weeds were abundant. I cast 15m out, immediately an Asp strikes at about 30cm depth, surprising, but not unusual for them, the strike itself felt like a jolt of lightning threw the rod. The line sways to one side, I continue reeling in the fish, the size of the asp compared to the strike was remarkable. A 36cm silver beauty. I take a pic and let it go. What followed were 2 more Asp with the same exhilarating strikes, I miss another 2 hits.
All in a river patch no longer than 15 metres. After 4h of wading, pleasantly amazed with the fish caught I end the day. I heard old fisherman talking about asp in this river from childhood, but never have I hooked one until now. A nostalgic fishing trip. What a great day !
