Always something of interest about.
John Found, who was again my fishing companion, had a frustrating couple of days. He tried a new swim and was delighted to get indications off chub almost straight away. The problem he had was one of not being able to conect with apparently perfect bites that would even spin the reel. Time and time again he missed, and then would connect with a fish out of the blue on an indication that appeared exactly the same. He managed to hook eight to a best of 6lb-3oz over the two days, but he reconds he missed maybe 50 or more. One logical answer is that they were not truely bites, instead it was the chub taking the maggots out of the feeder and giving that tell tale indication. If you suffer a similar situation try casting into the swim with no bait on the hook and see if you still get the apparent perfect bite.
