Spring fishing I find can be difficult. Cold nights and only mild days, or constant rain and water temperatures still quite low. One fish that will often satisfy my desire to angle is the humble Roach. I decided to spend an afternoon at Decoy lake, know to have some obliging spring fish.
The weather is fine and sunny. A cool but gentle breeze blows in from the south east. The lake water has a good colour although feels quite cool, but the fish don’t feel particularly cold as I found out later.
