Went back to the lake that I had the Tench from last week. Wasn't expecting much due to yesterday's downpour and I wasn't disappointed. Few little Roach (why do Roach smell so much?) a Skimmer and last knocking the float proper went sailing away with something really rather annoyed on the hook. Massive searing runs all over the place, it was almost unmanageable. I was beginning to thing of the words the chap I talked to last week spoke, "there's a few thirties in here and several twenties". Eventually it began to tire and after two attempts I netted it.
"It" turned out to be a Mirror of 8lb 12 oz hooked neatly in the leading edge of it's starboard pectoral.

Good point on the roach smell, aside from Bream no other coarse fish smell as much as roach
