Today I had arranged special permission to fish in one of the private mill pools at our stream.
Allthough the main attraction would have been the Trout you might encounter there these
pools also housed very large Roach and Dace.

I had feared that the strong easterly wind on this cloudless day would make fishing
absolutely miserable but fish where pretty active in the morning.
It all worked out pretty nice as the Trout put up quite an areal show and the Roach was of
the size I had hoped to catch.

The fishing was not that easy though and when the sun was setting the temperature
bottomed out and bites ceased completely.
Still it was a golden day, literally ...
