This rather nice roach (or hybrid?) fell to two sweetcorn haired to a size 12 under a locslide float.  Here’s the obligatory ‘fish on a landing net and unhooking mat with float and rod for scale :-D ’ photo.  Didn’t have my scales with me (again!) runs about 31/32 cm long, the locslide float is 15cm long so there’s a measure.

Other than some pesky perch and a few more hand size roach a quiet day…. apart from the carp going doolally spawning and thrashing about.
 

As an aside this is my first year back regular fishing since I was a lad of 13/14 :-) so far this year I’ve had a 13lb pike the other week, a 5lb+ tench out of Rook Hall and a 10.6 common out of Little Park (that’s one of my personal goals for this year done a double carp, am still up for the 20lb pike) – Al.
