TI­DAL THAMES IS HOT FOR ROACH

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

SO MARTIN Sal­ter from the Angling Trust has landed a mag­nif­i­cent 2lb 2oz roach from the full ti­dal Thames, ac­tu­ally in a Lon­don post­code. This in­spired my pal John Gard to have an­other go and, de­spite no flow, a sub­tle change in rig and bait led him to a 1lb 14oz cracker from Ham.

Now that the an­nual draw-off is upon us, with the semi-ti­dal above Rich­mond Lock be­ing drained for main­te­nance work, it will be in­ter­est­ing to see what hap­pens on the TideFest sec­tions at Strand on the Green and Barnes.

Any­one giv­ing them a go may pros­per... even on the float.
