The last angling session of the year and the final fish of 2022 is a roach

My first fish of 2022 was a gudgeon and my final one was a roach.

It was another short session this morning and that was dictated to by the fact that I have a working game in north Wales later today.

As I’ve done in recent outings, I visited a small pool.

Within minutes, I wasn’t going to be a blanker for the final session of the year because I had banked a small roach.

It was a very still day, which is perfect for watching a small orange tip just showing above the surface of the water.
