My friend Alan Vaughan came down for a couple of bassing sessions on the 1st and 2nd of September. He showed me how to use chugging plugs and I took him to a spot where I expected there would be plenty of school bass to exercise his fly rod.
Of course Alan has caught loads of bass on lures. Like many other bass anglers he has his favourite plugs but changes the lure according to conditions (how shallow it needs to run, how far it needs to be cast etc).
Alan had not caught many bass on the fly so he was chuffed to land four in a session from the small shoal which was feeding on seaweed fly maggots almost at his feet.
I could hardly believe it when the first bass took my chugging plug. In fact all our fish took the lures long after they had finished chugging and were just sitting on the surface like sticks of rock.
