Chase the dace.

Spent  a cold hour on roach straight  for no reward though the silver hair cabal were picking  a few up from theier sheltered area. On to the bridge pool and first trot a wriggling silver dart was swung in.


 A bite most trots and though dace were mostly responsible I had a couple of roach when the float deviated into the slacker spot.


And this gudgeon, seemingly an escapee from a perch as it had been stripped of scales as onky a perch can.


Hemp and maggot doing the business today Several of the dace had that spawning time sandpaper feel to them.

Classic combo.



Well, that's it for the river till June though I do have a strictly fly only option in reserve.

    1. We don't get the big floods you have on this particular river, it's been the wind that's done me. Yes, otters and avian predators are a big worry and round here fishing for the pot, or to throw up the banks but our rivers do seem to be getting back to a normality I'd have recognised as a teenager.

      Guess you'll be on the canals now, our only one is closed as it's loosely in the Broads area. What ever you do, enjoy.
