I was walking with the kids along our local
brook , looking along the way for any fishy
haunts to try .
A few days later a spare hour saw me
making my way to a spot I had seen
just a few bits and bobs no need for
a landing net .......MY MISTAKE !
The first run through and the float dipped
I struck into a decent fish it was a Roach
I scrambled down the bank because it
was a good fish , the hook pulled loose
and I was gutted, taking the photos
for the blog is a big part of the pleasure
something to look back on through
the cold winter months .

A few more small fish like the Gudgeon above
before the line tightened into another very good
fish , it kicked away in the steam a monster
for this little stream , The most beautiful Trout
came to the side ............. again I tried to get it
if only my net was here unfortunately again the
small hook pulled loose and the fish slipped away.

I carried on taking a few Roach and small
Chub all fin perfect, the light faded and
I made the walk back .
Think I will take the net next time
just hope I can get another Trout
they are so well marked.

''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.
