A Precious Gem

Note: The fishing was so good I went 2 times...

Part 1 

Scanning through The Angler's Mail I noticed a section on Emerald Pools Fishery near Highbridge.

It looked very nice indeed with sweeping Willow Trees and quant little bridges.  I had to give it a go.

There are 4 Pools - Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Jade.  They all offer something a bit different.

I settled on Ruby, according to Anglers Mail, packed with Pasties (not steak ones).

I took a corner peg and set up a very simple loafer float with 3AAs set to about 2 foot.

I chucked in some breadcrumb and cast in...

Looked great...

Then the crazy stuff began...



The action was relentless.  Bread and worm were the pick of the day.  Grand total:

Carp/Carp esque fishies : 29!!!
Roach: 2
Bream: 1

None of them were huge (all between 1/2ib - 3ibs) but it was just the shear number of bites.  I have only included some pictures of the better ones.  In fact my camera ran out of batteries (overworked on this session...)

An incredible few hours.  I reckon total weight must have been somewhere in the 40ib to 50ib region.  

Certainly a PB for me.

The next precious gem was Emerald Pool...
