I went fishing, I talked angling and I went for a nature walk in the woodland

I didn’t take the water temperature but just by angling-related contact I can confirm that it’s still cold.

Not as cold as it’s been during the winter, but nevertheless, nothing to tempt me yet as far as the spring species are concerned.

I haven’t even caught a perch for a while however, as always, the ever-obliging roach came to the rescue.

I fished with a Greys Prodigy 12’ float rod and a Shimano 3500 reel spooled with 4lb Maxima Chameleon.

The small waggler was enough for three feet of water just a couple of rod lengths out.
