Nipped down a local mark for a quick session two hours before low. Flat calm, perfect clarity, bit of weed and a few small bait fish about. After playing with a few small to mid size divers without any luck I clipped on a Ghost silver Patchinko. Third cast i chucked it up current and parallel too the shore(2-3ft deep), after about 10 yards of brisk WTD, SLAM. Great take off the top, big splash and instant bend in the rod. A good scrap ensues with plenty of splashing and head shakes. Not long after this beauty was landed.

About 3lb and fin perfect.(check out the colours on her back, stunning.)
A close up of her-


That was that. Well chuffed.

Yeah good shout Daz. I also thought the same, she took it really clean, especially as I was walking it quite 'sharply'. It's great when you get a nice clean hook hold.
