Went fishing this morning to a small pool called woodside(Lymm AC) in Dutton. The pool is abou 1/3 acre in size and is an unusual shape, bit like the letter B. The pool is stocked with pretty much all the usual stillwater fish and a number of grass carp upto about 5lb. Carbon /compiste rods and pole's are banned from here due to overhead power lines, but using my old glass and cane rods makes it that little bit more interesting. I Arrived at the pool at about 08:30 and conditions seemed favourable(slight breeze and overcast). Set up two rods on the swingtip one in the margins on chick pea(testing a new flavour) and one close to a far bank bush on Elips pellet(courtesy of BFW.co.uk).After missing a couple of lightening quick bites i decided to call it a day at 12:30 without a fish coming to the net.
Overall an enjoyable day in nice conditions and a few lessons learnt. .It's nice to be back on this pool after it being closed most of the season due to a large number of carp deaths in the area of late .
