Not Barbel

I fancied a crack at something other than a barbel - so armed with the stick 'n' pin I went in search of a big fat Spring dace. Long story short; after a little roach first cast I was plagued by small trout - in some cases catching them, putting them back and then catching them again! I'm sure there are dace here - and I've still got time...

    1. It’s part concrete drainage ditch, full of rubbish, and part beautiful stream - I found a scenic bit for the photo!

    2. Now you've spoilt the elusion :) just goes to show what is in these forgotten waterways though

    3. Some of it is beautiful, then it’ll will go through a car park or an industrial estate - I should take photos of both extremes for balance.

    1. I thought they had finished spawning as they were ravenous - but looking at that one perhaps not!
