Monthly premium bonds draw, semi-retirement plans still a work in progress and another margin session in clear, shallow water

I’m meandering, so back to the fishing session where I caught roach on this occasion but no perch.

I stuck with my standard margin approach of a couple of maggots on a size 14 hook under a small waggler.

I have caught some decent fish, considering the venues of course, which is why I also go for 4lb line.

It doesn’t put the smaller ones off either, I catch plenty of those along the way.

There was also another small pike to contend with, which I dealt with in my usual way of touching it with the rod.
