It's Lovely Down South



With the amount of water around at the moment and hurricane Frank violently battering us,(it took the roof off the kid's playhouse this afternoon-another job for the New Year!) it was amazing that yesterday we were treated to bright blue skies and some sorely missed sunshine. We had to head way down south to find it though.
Our target was Roach and Dace, not the incessant procession of Trout that found our maggots irresistible.


By moving about the river I did find some Dace up to 8oz which were good fun but the Roach were nowhere to be seen.



We carried on into darkness in the vain hope that they might show but they continued to elude us. Scant reward for a tough round trip of over six hours but that won't deter us from returning.

  1. Unlucky Joe, that section of the Frome is not easy but we all know what it's capable of, shame one of it's enormous inhabitant's didn't come to the fore, but another time eh!.
