Sunday 23rd August, 16:00 - 18:00hrs. Hopsford Hall. Warm and breezy.
Had a couple of hours at Hopsford Hall with Max after Roach this afternoon.
Kept everything very simple - fished maggot on a whip to hand. We had around fifteen Roach to approximately 10oz, some of which he struck, swung in and returned by himself (after I'd unhooked them).
It took roughly a quarter of a ton of confectionery and crisps to bribe him into staying for the duration, most of which time was spent playing with the maggots rather than fishing but hey, it's a start.
