    Ideally roach but I wouldn't mind a chub or two.I feel a compelling need to float fish a proper river.

    S-Kippy,

    You have a PM

    Just be careful if go into town to do a bit of shopping - Catherine Street and Castle Street can be deadly over Christmas...

    Good luck, if you catch it right the roach fishing is excellent. As per earlier post, speak to the bailiff for latest info.
