When UK anglers think of coarse fish, the Roach is likely to be the first fish that comes to mind, and the fish that many anglers first cut their teeth on. Rae and Keith start their quest at Wold Farm Fishery, a very scenic stillwater complex in Bedfordshire on an overcast and blustery spring day. Rae's equipped himself with a new pole and gets some handy tips from Keith on the art of pole fishing before getting started. Keith catches a couple of quick fish but both are having issues with the wind spreading their groundbait around so Keith suggests they use pole mount cup feeders to keep the bait in a concentrated area. The fishing now picks up for both anglers with Keith constantly making subtle changes to his baits and rigs to keep them coming. In the second half of the show, the chaps head to the Great Ouse in Befordshire in mid winter and the river looks in great nick. Its a stretch that Rae regularly fishes and he knows there a lot of smaller 1 and 2 year old class fish here so they'll need all their experience to chop and change to pick up the bigger fish. Its a prolific and enjoyable session for both anglers using maggots as bait but slightly different presentations. If you enjoy Roach fishing, you're sure to enjoy this homage to one of the UK's most popular and obliging coarse fish.
