    Has anyone else noticed the lack of Chub on the Swale since the big flood. I hope its just me haveing a bad run but I havent seen anyone else catch one either. Please tell me I,m on a bad run and you are all still catching.

    Funnily enough, i didnt contact a single chub on the Swale this year, but got my target fish, the barbel ok. The Tees was far superior for chub this year for me, and i just put it down to me doing something wrong on the Swale. Glad you brought the thread up mate.

    Fished Northallerton stretch above Morton bridge yesterday with the nephew, he had one about 2.5lb and a niece trout. I had one about 1lb and lost a bigger fish off. Definite lack of chub on the pegs I expected them on this time of year.
