A Day on the Dane

A day on the Dane, after a break of three weeks or so I got back on the river , the sky was clear and the river was at it's normal winter level although it was more like spring , the only down side the clear sky that now brought a bright sunny day had also meant the previous nights temperatures had made the river cold not the best combination of conditions but oh well not to worry . I was taking a picture of Phil trotting a float when I had a visit from a little Robin it came up close, it's reward a few maggots and for me a photo , amazing how after a few minutes it was within arms length .
Further down steam and only my second run down saw the float dip ,the fish was on unfortunately moments later it wasn't , nether the less it was a good sign a few moments later and I was into another this came to the net a nice Chub only a few more followed but it was great to be out on such a lovely day.

''A Thought''

A simple philosophy I have adopted over the years has been tested and re-enforced in the past few weeks. It is to celebrate those good and pleasing things encountered in daily life, no matter how small, with at least the same vigour as I bemoan the bad or merely vexing.
