Fished a new stretch of the Kennet yesterday. Tried out a a new rod (Cadence 15ft #0) so float fished all day. Caught 45 roach to about 12ozs and 9 dace to about 10 ozs. Please with the new rod, heavier but softer than my Acolyte, I'm sure that it will get a lot of use. Swapped baits between wheat, punched bread and hemp. Caught on all three but most of the better fish came to hemp. Wheat is better when stationary. Quite a few floating leaves which kept catching the float up as I slowed it down in the 7ft deep swim, good day. One other angler, he caught a grayling as well as roach and dace.
