Going deeper underground

Roving around the River Medlock in the centre of Manchester might look weird but it has some hidden treasures. Climbing down the river just behind Piccadilly Station, I had to walk for a good five minutes under the ground through pitch black until the river opens back up to this cracking swim.

On my journey through the tunnel I managed to spot a few small trout living in that tiny stream, in complete darkness. I was praying that my torch held out for the return trip.
The swim was alive with fish, this chub of over 3lb came out to play along with 13 other chub all about a pound and a couple of small perch with lovely bright markings. I could see a little yellow ghost carp of around a pound swimming about. It wasn't interested in my bait. I'm guessing somebody had threw it in from one of the apartments by getting to big for a tank.
