John it was a little over six.
My normal method is to fish one rod on meat fished downstream on lead or feeder with a second rod fished in front of me on maggot feeder.
Both rods are rarely fished past half way as this mostly negates the need to wind in for every boat.
My best catches have come after dark but the odd fish will come in the daytime if there is a bit of colour in the water.
If I fish through the night, the rods are left out until I need to sleep and then reeled in until I wake, this is because even young fit anglers will struggle to get out of a sleeping bag and subdue a barbell before its snagged. 8)
