Tree-lined pools of­fer a more tra­di­tional style of fish­ing

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

FOR a spot of nat­u­ral fish­ing in a tran­quil en­vi­ron­ment, you can’t go far wrong with a trip to He­skin Old Hall Farm. The Lancashire venue has three ma­ture ponds, some of which have been a haven for fish for over 30 years. These tree-lined pools are not your typ­i­cal carp-filled com­mer­cials as they of­fer a more tra­di­tional style of fish­ing for mixed nets.

Carp, tench, roach, perch, bream and rudd are just some of the species you can catch here. Pool 1 is the old­est and con­tains plenty of carp well into dou­ble fig­ures.

Pool 2 is more tra­di­tional and an­glers here can ex­pect to catch plenty of tench on ei­ther the float or the feeder.

There are plenty of fea­tures on this pool, in­clud­ing an aer­a­tor and an is­land to cast to, but an­glers of­ten fare well fish­ing close in for the tin­cas.

Pool 3, mean­while, also holds a mix of stock and an­glers can sim­ply fish a float with baits such as mag­gots and cast­ers to catch a mixed net of sil­ver­fish and odd carp.
