I had a day at Royal Berkshire Fisheries yesterday and decided to go back to my childhood and
" knock a few Roach out".
I used casters and red maggot about a rod length out in 5 feet of water to catch about 50 small roach.
Three small perch up to a pound were the only fish that I needed the landing net .

As I packed up a fellow angler said that Perch over 3 pound normally showed as the light faded.
I must stay a bit later next time.Image

It made a change to watch the bright red float constantly go under rather than the motionless
tip of a Barbel rod.
