Needle in a haystack fishing on a small pool and a couple of additions to my Motown vinyl collection with memories from 1976

I’ve enjoyed my small pool sessions of late, with float-fished maggots producing lots of perch and roach.

Sticking with the venue-type, I changed the target and approach for this session, when I went for tench with quiver-tipped corn.

One of the things that I do when I’m fishing is to stay switched on to what’s going on beyond just my initial focus.

It may be that I spot something in the water, or I may actually catch a fish that I didn’t set out to, but either way you store these things in your mind for the future.

That was the case on this venue, when I caught a tench some time ago while after roach.
