A Move to the Roach Pit
ell what a
bloody month
I’ve had! I’m
not going to
lie to you; the
majority of it’s
been somewhat shit to say the least.
I’ll get to what’s gone on in a bit but
first of all, as usual, I’ll get a couple of

bites from them. Over the next couple
of days I had a good few tench and
didn’t see a single carp show. On the
Wednesday morning at first light

again out long in front of the swim.
As I sat there with a brew watching
them, Graham came in to the swim
