Red Fins


Fishing Week: Day 4 (0730-1030)
Location: Local River
Target: Roach

I couldn't resist going back and tracking down the shoal of roach from Tuesday, and they were still where I left them. This time I did it properly with a stick float and centerpin. Initially a bit finicky, but once some mashed bread was added they came on the feed.

I totally lost count of how many I caught, it was like being in a trance - one of the very few times I wish I owned a keepnet. And with a few small chub and monster gudgeon mixed in it was a great way to spend a morning. None over a pound today, maxing out at about 12oz, the bigger they are the quicker they learn!
