This Country Park encloses 3 of the 19 waters on our club permit. Ron Hassall Pool, Lyme pool and Wood Pool. Today I fished Lyme Pool, this is only my second time on this water.
Rocked up nice and early, I put it down to these beautiful sunny mornings we are having a spell of.
Set up on the back side of the pool, middle peg. There is some good F1 sport in this water by all accounts and a few Barbel as well. 2 lines:
1. Mud Line 9 meters, 8-10 Slick elastic, 0.16 through to 0.11 hook length, 16 Preston SWL hook. GORTINI Mini Margin, maggot or Burt Baits 4mm Polony hook or hair expanders.
2. Track line 9 to 3 o’clock, 6-8 Slick elastic, 0.16 through to 0.11 hook length 18 Preston SWL hook. GORTINI 4X14 Round Body float, maggot or Burt Baits 4mm Polony hook or hair expanders.
Feeding a mix 70/30 of Burt Baits Stillwater Silver Stimul8tor/X-pander.
Started off on the mud line and it only took 3-4 mins and the first 4lb F1 was in the bag. The rest of the early morning was pretty much a busy period. 6F1, 11 Crucian Carp and 11 Tench, peppered with the odd good stamp roach throughout the day. Switching about on the track line mixed in with Roach, Rudd and Perch was a brace of Chubb to 2 lb. The Barbel never showed. Fishing the mud line I got dragged into the reeds and snags, lost a GORTINI mini margin! Lost a few hooks and had a hook straightened. It was a busy few hours, finished with 76 and no bait left. Early dart home then!
Some of the days catch.
