There was a time when I used to go to the pool and fish for pike. The place is part of a shbot and the pool attracts a number of duck.

Old W., the keeper, was a kindly fellow . although his employer frowned on the of anyone coming within a mile of the PI he thought there was some merit in my ca,I, jag pike which gobbled up the ducklings. P a long time since I fished the pool and YesIto day I learned that I have little chance of ing it again. Old W. has been 'gathered ; and the pool is forbidden territory as 114I before.
