Upping The Ant(e)

Last week I took a trip up to Emerald Pool Fishery.  I don't really need any excuses to go here as it always fishes well and is kept in nice condition.  I headed for Emerald lake as I fancied some variety, aside from the Carp there are Perch and some nice Roach as well.

A chap fishing on Sapphire popped over covered in flying black ants.  They had hatched in the tree above him!  He was forced to move to another spot as his unwanted guests were everywhere!

An hour later it started raining, but not water - Ants!  Thousands of the little blighters fell from the tree above, dropping all over me and in the water in front.  It was a blessing in disguise.  The Carp swiftly homed in on the free meal and soon mouths were gulping down some nice fresh ants!

I took advantage and had 3 Carp within half an hour, plus some bonus Roach.

Some of which can be seen below.

Another great session.  Next time I'm going to up the ante and go for Jade.  Potential to be my PB of 12ibs in this water.
