This time I went river fishing in the afternoon with a minimal amount of fishing gear and used earthworms I dug along the river as bait. Earthworms were very easy to find. I used a very simple attachment (lead for the pencil drop shot technique and a larger hook for the big barbel). I didn’t even expect any special catch, maybe what kind of chub was the day more than successful for me, as I caught 8 chubs and 1 barbel. All the fish are released back into the river.
Enjoying autumn colors by the river, watching the last autumn flowers, bees, listening to birds, breathing fresh air, … and waiting for a fish bite is for me relaxation, calmness, inspiration, meditation in this stressful world.
“The best time to go fishing is when you can get away,” Robert Traver.
I was looking for earthworms for bait first.
I think most fish couldn’t resist this delicious protein snack ?.
Ready to cast.
After about a few minutes, this beauty was caught. one quick video and then the chub swam back into the river.
A few pieces of basic fishing gear I had in my backpack. Quite enough for successful fishing on the river.

For a bonus catch I was rewarded towards evening by this beauty ?.
Even this young chub could not resist the delicious (for fish) earthworms. I don’t know how he managed to eat such a bite.
Till next time …
…… tight lines and wet nets!
