Arriving at the pool we quickly set up a float rod and fished for anything that came along. After one or two casts the float was fine tuned and ready for action. It didn't take long before it sailed under. These initial bites were missed of course, until eventually one of the small Roach was successfully swung in to my hand and the first fish of her career landed and photographed.
first of many ..?
We continued to catch a steady succession of 3in blades for the next few hours even landing a specimen gudgeon (certainly a good PB she'll find hard to beat)
The only minor hiccup happened when I managed to temporarily impale a hook in my daughters finger whilst helping her to sort out a tangle, oww! ... happens to me nearly every session I tell her! which didn't seem to help, it was cleaned and she soon forgot about it though, that is until mom phoned to check we were both ok !
Later on the skies clouded and it tried to rain. The temperature dropped considerably and before long the cold wind took its toll so we called it a day. Both of us had really enjoyed the afternoon fishing this beautifull old pool. I was pleased to be asked on the way home, when I would be taking her again ! ( I'd better get her some of her own tackle soon then, or I won't get a look in ! )
