Roach in the Mist
Went out around nine last night. It didn't look too promising, as the mist was rolling along the water dampening out the usual sounds of nature and making it quite eerie. Had a few tentative nibbles in the first half hour before I caught my first Roach, 2-3oz. Exchanged some pleasantries with a few passers by then things went even quieter, the mist became fog and even difficult to see float at 11m. Then all hell broke loose with a serious Roach that was doing a good impression of a leaping salmon. Turned out to be about 6oz and just very lively, lovely fish. Caught one more fish at 10.30pm and decided it was time to call it a night. A much more successful session than I expected.
