The River Gowy (spring)

We spent a few hours on the River Gowy , a new river it was the first time I had seen it and although it looked quite good it was a fish less day for me.
Phil had a couple of Roach but try as I may I went without so much as a bite , when you try somewhere new you hope to catch it encourages you to try it again , this little stream is further away than our other haunts and it may be a while before I make the trip again. Having a young family means time is not easy to find and when we do get out it's nice to be in with a chance of a few bites . So summer may be my next time to visit .
On a plus the weather was fantastic for the time of year, the plants and trees seem to think spring is here and I would agree . The clear skies that brought an early morning hard frost may have made the fish hard to catch , but at least the bright sunshine made the bank side warm by mid day , that in turn made fishing a little more comfortable than it has other the winter months .

''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.
