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...
