Straight out of work and on the river at Earlham. Strange seeing an egret in amongst the paddlers and dogs cavorting in the low, clear river. Years of the great unwashed and the uni crew alike have worn the bed down to the chalk substrate. Norwich is sited over a great honeycomb of chalk workings. Remember the bus that slowly fell backwards into a Norfolk sink hole?
Time for a move. This tree and pool sometimes holds some lovely roach.
No roach at home today but a lovely dace and a dashing little sergeant made up for that.
Gudgeon, more dace and minnow from the next bend, and this tiny chub. Bread not maggot next time.
Had a look right down to the bridge near the UEA lake. Not much access due to the undergrowth and "managed" marsh. Some clear runs, and small holes. Some nice roach ghosting in and out of cover. Chap fishing below the bridge, laying on with flake had a very nice roach. Autumn and winter river.
