I only saw a few tiny fish and it is COMPLETELY overgrown!
I just happened to be going past in the week with a float rod so I cheekily dropped in for half an hour. The pool is suffering from low water levels and reed encroachment. You can see where there was a swim once, with a board, now high and dry and surrounded by reeds.

I did have a couple of cheeky casts. It is (now) extremely shallow - perhaps only 12-18 inches - and full of very stunted rudd.

It looks ripe for a crucian conservation project on the quiet and so long as there are no king carp in there (I saw no signs) it would do very well and probably not attract any attention.

A classic photo thanks for sharing it.
Those poles look a bit on the heavy side?
A few beers in the crate might lighten them though.
Best John.
