Fishing At The Ornimental Pond Southampton Common - a Memory of Southampton.

From the age of about 5 (I'm now 69) I use to fish this lake for tench, carp and roach. Then in the winter of 62/63 I would ice skate on it from Boxing Day 62 to march 63 - what a winter that was.
Now in New Zealand for that last 35 years course angling here is not the same. However, the trout fishing is outstanding..
