    Well done, beats a blank. I actually saw you down there, I was chatting to my friend who was fishing further round the pond. He only managed small roach too. Its a good pond though stick at it and the rewards will come.

  2. Ah right. Ye, it beats blanking. The feeder was my main hope to bring in the slightly bigger fish, but it only managed 1 bite. In the end I had to plumb up twice, to find the ledge which was about 20 feet out, that's where I got most of my bites and fish, but the guy fishing next to me told me that the lake fishes a lot better in the warmer months. I'm definitely going to go back when it gets warmer, try and get some of the tench out.

    Thanks for commenting, might see you up there again some time soon.

    In summer you should try fishing the Beck that runs into here through Meanwood park, i went back to basics on this one and armed with just a Hook and line wrapped around a bottle with a bag of bread in the other hand. You have to go covert and try and be as quiet as you can while stalking the fish at hand. You will see plenty of fish upto about 1.5lb through the shallower waters at the bottom end of the park. Use a flake of bread and just let it float down stream. I was pulling out Trout like no tomorrow and its alot more fun watching them take your bait. The fights are more intense because you are just using a line and hook. Also there is a weir Half way up the park roughly, ive seen some pike up in the Bowl section at the top and not a shabby size too 7-10lb. If you decide to give it a go let me know how you get on 😀
