A few types of "swims" where we're fortunate enough to fish..   The Exeter Canal before first light (Tench blowing everywhere on this morning).. The tidal Exe     First light at Hopes

I'm guessing I was about 14 when this was taken.That would make it 43 years ago. Eek ! Its possible I had hooked the bottom rather than a fish:)   This one was taken at the same spot yesterday a

Moved further down south recently the canal is a 5min walk so after years of barrowing around a ton of carp gear around packed lakes started fishing light. Drop shotting for perch and pre baiting like

 Had another try for perch at the tiny pond built the swim it was boiling had a live swimmer few yards away after a few dozen fish I hooked into a perch looking well over 2 lb on the whip 12 oz bottom it was a battle on the light set up but managed to get me hand on it and drop it back in lol so no proper pic sadly 🍷F5F5501C-555D-46B6-AFE2-FCDF3385DC8C.jpeg.64ea9923817d67b46a5cd64f4376c213.jpeg

We had loads around here at one time...I was a cnut in my younger days for "liberating" fish and moving them around🙈 stocked loads of different fisheries that started popping up 😁 free yrs membership on the night syndicates for a high 20 or 30...barbel into rivers that no one else would fish....my club recently netted the front lake at  Caerphilly castle and removed all the fish,carp was kept...everything else was sold on...double figure bream,9/10 lb tench,crucians,roach,Rudd,perch, good pike,....we put 2000 chublets in around 2005...not one has ever been caught or seen again....all went down the drain that flows into the Rhumney river....they grew to nearly 6lb but have disappeared last few seasons..walk for miles now for the odd one🙈mink,otters, chicken and human waste along with certain birds are killing our rivers 👍

We had one very similar, 30 years or more back, the new owners let the cows into it and f****d us off.
