Crossing the bridge a band of clear water under along a low willow line had me stopping. A spot I'd earmarked for some spray hemp and mag sometime in the future but just some gentle trotting using the extra length of the 15 foot Grays and a pin. I was expecting mainly dace but happened on some solid if not spectacular roach. Seems there are plenty in the system right now. Along with the seven plus chub that are appearing in the weeklies and sponsor posts.
Not a seven plus chub. But a chub none the less. Makes the Drennan Super Specialist #16 look like an anchor.
This roach had a very high back and a big belly.
Standard size it seems this year. One a trot for a while. All netters
Love dace when they start pushing this size.
Really must spend some time planning for the better roach this autumn. They're certainly there. Bread mostly I think.
