Watching – and catching – fish in water that was just inches deep

Then, after my favourite meal of beans on toast, I went fishing for a couple of hours on a pool.

Compared to pursuing pike or carp, I was travelling light.

I’m fishing different places and spots but the common denominator is that I’ve done a lot of margin angling in recent times.

That’s where I went this time as well, to an area that was just twelve inches deep maximum and with clear water.

With lots of weed and underwater vegetation coming through though, I was confident.
