Fishing a small pool and a nice surprise or two

It looks like being a very warm week ahead, and that was a good incentive for getting up early this morning to go fishing.

Beat the temperature before it rises, and stay one step in front of the dogs in the swim.

Fishing a number of small pools in recent months, I’ve got to know them quite well, and that includes keeping an eye open for bigger fish.

I’ve also spotted a few carp along the way.

Nothing massive, but from the venues in question it would certainly be an achievement just to catch one.
