Small River Fish 6


There is no getting away from it; autumn is turning into winter - it’s getting colder out there! I hit the local river for the afternoon, time for another wander with the stick ‘n’ pin and half a loaf of bread.


As well as gudgeon and chub I was really after a pound plus roach in it’s beautiful autumn colours - in daylight - a bit of an ask as we’re starting to lose light just after 3pm at this time of year.


Loads of roach but none over the magic pound mark, I did start to hit a bigger stamp of fish as it got darker - but I thought I’d put these little beauties on here - what stunning looking fish!

  1. Yes, stunning is the word. Your modest-sized, pristine roach take me right back to boyhood, and the quest for that elusive pounder...

    1. Show roach! Especially the top one, hope that goes on to be a pounder... Or even bigger!

  3. Trotting for roach on a small river is what it's all about. Size is a bonus.
