Brief spin

Decided on the spur of the moment to have a spinning session on the Ouse at Newhaven today.

Got there at about 1130, before high water. Fished on the Western bank of the river above Denton Island. Tried a few spots and varied type of lure (Dexter wedge, Toby, Mepps), speed and depth but had no takes at all.

From what I could see, there no signs of fish movement or activity. I’ll be keeping a close eye on the area and will be having a serious go later in the year.

After a couple of fruitless hours, I packed in and left it to the numerous small boats that were ‘messing about on the river’.
