These small pools are full of surprises and, four months in, how’s semi-retirement going?

As far as my angling is concerned, I don’t set out in advance to fish certain places.

There isn’t a schedule of venues or species.

It is very much a case of doing whatever takes my fancy.

I am enjoying the small pools and ponds I’ve been on so far this year very much though, hence why I keep returning.

The latest trip was an early morning one, fishing with sweetcorn.
