Roach fishing on the river can!


Only a short hour session in the evening as that’s when it’s been most productive!

Walked down to the river and it’s flowing a bit fast but nothing awful and a bit of colour.

Setup was my 10ft Shakespeare match rod paired with a Shakespeare reel with 8lb line down to a 2g float with a size 10 hook, bait of choice was large dendrobina worms.

Fishing about 4ft deep in the slacks catching a few gudgeon here and there and a couple of nice dace, one fish I lost felt like a half decent chub but ah well.

Crushed up a few hallibut pellets in a pellet grinder and threw it out as ground bait had a few knocks and lost the worm.

2nd attempt I struck into a really nice fish but it got off and obviously 3rd times the charm hooked into the largest roach of this season really deep and thick set fish put up an amazing fight and as I had him resting in the net I had another decent roach but half the size of the large one! 

Think the float stuff will be calming down and I’ll be moving onto lures and deadbaits for the predators this season! 

And if you’re out this week, tight lines everyone!

I know it’s a bit heavy but I ain’t had a chance to set up my light stuff and there’s been times jacks have snapped me off as well but I’ve got my 5lb line set up sorted for roach and the silvers
