And that's when things started to go downhill, Toby managed to nab another couple of small Roach over the course of the next hour, I however didn't manage quite so well, in fact it was about two hours until I had my next bite, and I missed that!
With that it was time for a move, the ice that had earlier covered the other half of the pool had cleared, and presuming that this deeper end of the pool would hold more fish we tried pegs 11 and 12. Toby carried on with the waggler tactics, I changed over to a small maggot feeder sticking with maggot on the hook, to no avail, cage feeder half loaded with hemp to worm no joy, method feeder to corn was equally successful. By this stage my sidekick had taken to stalking the roach with his float fished maggot, well I say stalking, his approach was to chuck his bait out and hope it landed on a fishes nose, which it started to do at surprisingly regular intervals.
