Trout With Rob

As we walked down to the Rugby game me and Rob discussed
our next outing , we said Sunday evening may be OK only problem
the rain , for the last few years the amount of summer rainfall seems
to have increased , that and the fact that Rob fly fishes some
exclusive waters means we only get out on the river a few times a
year , we have known each other close on 20 years
and with me picking up the fly rod a little more often I hope to
increase the amount of times we fish . On the way down
to the river we wondered if the river would be to high and
coloured but it was just about OK a couple of rising fish spotted
off the bridge quickened our pace to the river.
A nice Trout started things off ,in great condition and well
over a pound around14inc .
Rob was in next and we continued to hook catch and loose
fish on what was a good evening.
A nice photo of a typical Brownie from this river.
Below Rob plays a nice fish around the pound mark
on his little #4 brook rod.

Nice to hear and seen that you are back on internet!!! Hello again!

That river looks very similar to one where oliver Edwards fishes.

Nice caught!!

Glad to be back oldsmuggler the river is less than 30km from my house and I can be on the bank within 20 mins . The other rivers take me half an hour or so , I have got a new opportunity to join a society with over 200 waters many of which are rivers!! could keep me busy for the rest of my life .

''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.
