    Ahhh the lady of the river!

     

    Spent many years driving round the country grayling fishing on the welsh dee, the severn, the dove, scotland, the nith, the annan. method was purely trotting and had some wonderful fish. Fishing in them slack eddies in the crystal water, does not get better in my opinion.

    Well done on your catch and when they shoal up and conditions favourable you can have some spectacular bags as you have. I recall fishing a river up in the cheviot hills and finishing with over 150 fish for the day, almost a fishy a cast most under the 1lb mark.

     

    Keep promising myself i will return to the river as have not for many years, hopefully next year.

    Well done Colin. Very nice fish to catch and few and far between in Norfolk.

    I used to travel to catch them. Had some memorable days fly fishing for them on the river Test carriers at Wherwell.

    Indeed, took my best Roach of 3lb 6oz from there in 2005.

    WOW!

     

    I doff my cap to thee...

     

    Fabulous fish.

     

    Had loads of 2lb + but never got near a 3.

     

    A good roach is a thing of beauty.

    It was a very old fish, with the top lobe of it's caudal fin missing and riddled with blackspot, but none the less a 3lb Avon roach.
