Beauty Amidst The Rat Race

Hidden away in our everyday drudgery, there can be found, if one looks, and is at the right place, at the right time, a portal which for a fleeting moment can transport one away from the rat-race to a world of tranquility.
This photograph was taken on my way to work with my phone, it is, believe it or not, in the middle of a town, on the borders of an industrial estate!
 The river contains Barbel, Chub, Carp, Perch, Roach, Dace, Gudgeon and Pike.


  1. Now thats what i call a beuty spot, And it holds all sorts of oppertunity's,
    Thanks for posting,

  2. When all around is frozen solid I find these little urban trickles can provide the best sport of all. I have one flowing just five minutes walk away that provides some of the best roach and perch sport imaginable - nothing huge, but all fish of a pound or so, and never caught before so you have to be careful not to pressure them in such small confines. I'll be down there when the snow falls...

  3. Size is never that important Gurn, some stunning fish can come from the smallest of "rivers"

  4. Paradise lost - now, paradise found.
