a really quick one from today

June 5th, 2011 5 comments

Following my theme of cloth cap and ancient tackle, I popped down to a small commercial pool today with my brand new Andrew Field floats ( yes I had to get some more as they are simply gorgeous) to try them out. I had quite a few fish on bread ( see an up coming post) but the real stars of the show were the fish landed on my heritage setup. The prettiest of the lot ( managed about 10 in the morning) was this 8lb odd mirror. Nice because it was plainly obvious that it doesn’t get landed all that much and looking at the size of its tail I wonder if this the reason. The fish went like a steam train and my apologies for the pic but the fish wouldn’t quieten down for a photo. Enjoy ..
