Happy St. Valentine’s Day… Let’s go fishing and visiting a garden centre… A simple life but a happy one

I’ve done – and enjoyed very much – a lot of margin angling in recent months.

This time though, although still a small pool, it was much deeper so instead of watching the bait in the shallows I was focused on a float instead.

I still went for the two maggots on a size 14 hook approach, which has served me well.

With both perch and roach on the bank, I was catching well.

Then it went quiet.
