17/9/19 Haydock Park Farm complex, Park pool 1 and 2.

Eddie Marcroft and I fished these pools today to carry out a census on stock levels. Started off on Park 1 and after knocking up another platform we seem to have scared all the fish away. Moved to Park 2 and had a fish a chuck all day for 6 hours solid. Eddie was getting some good size roach and a few skimmers, I was pulling out roach, a nice perch and a ~1.5lb skimmer. I fished big red, pinkie and caster alternating throughout the day. Simple rig, 2+top 2 GORTINI 4×10 chianti to a 22 wire hook. Finished the day with over 150 roach, a big perch and that skimmer, a good day. Eddie had a fair few more fish than I and also had the bigger stamp. But it wasn’t a competition and was just to gauge the stock, condition, size and quantity.
