Surprise haul of roach

Post by Chevin Chaser » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:11 pm

On Thursday morning whilst chub fishing on the Gt Ouse, a shoal of roach moved in. I ended up with a good haul and they were of good weights too. Here's a couple of examples.

Lovely fish, well done! Did you happen to weigh any?
