Thoughts on the weather and fishing, this morning’s angling session and a visit to the tackle shop to stock up for the next outing

You can often see the fish feeding and you can learn so much about their behaviour by watching them in shallow water.

I caught a number of small roach, all in pristine condition except for one which bore the signs of being attacked by a predator.

You can see that fish more clearly in the YouTube short below.

Watch the accompanying video.

There weren’t any marks from teeth, just missing scales, so it could well have been a perch as opposed to a pike, which is the fish that usually comes to mind.
