Tues 7th April - Hopsford Hall after work.
After catching a truck load of Roach on my previous visit I returned to Hopsford hoping to get amongst some larger Roach.
The wind was blowing a hooley up the lake, towards the car park. I banked on it abating as the evening drew on and hoped it would have blown some fish up so set up in the teeth of it.
To my disappointment it didn't abate but just strengthened and strengthened! Although I caught Roach, presentation was somewhat hampered and there was far fewer fish than my last visit.
