A very cold front!
A new venue - which is local to me and reputed to hold BIG roach. I've been meaning to get up there for a few weeks now to have a reccie but havent been able to find the time. So I had a few hours free this afternoon so Paul and I decided to give it a go.
The weather was far from ideal for roach fishing - bright sunshine - a strong gusting cold wind - interspersed with hail showers and to end the day off a real downpour.
After intially struggling to get presentation right in the gusting wind, we both finally started to get bites and were rewarded with a couple of 2oz roach - not the 2lbers we were after, but its a start, and it gives us a better idea of the tactics we might use in the future.
Brrrr that wind was cold.
