The Old River – the fishing enigma
10 anglers fished – the weather was perfect – the fishing wasn’t
1st Alan Baguley 1lb 4oz (1 big eel 2 small roach on red maggot)
2nd Karl Tucker 1lb 3oz (20+ small roach on maggot up in the water)
Most other anglers caught a few small fish for a couple of ounces with only a few (including mine) dry nets.
Where are the tench that we stocked ??? Where are the skimmers we saw spawning earlier this year ?? Where are the bigger roach ??
The Old River throws up lots of questions but gives few answers……..
