I met Pete a few months back on the Ribble ,
by chance a few weeks later we bumped
into each other in the Tackle shop ,we decided
on a few hours on the Ribble and although the
fishing was hard we had a good time.While out
he told me of a little water close to his house
seeing he only lives a couple of miles away I was
interested...........''It's got some cracking Perch in ''
He then described how you feed , catch small fish
then the Big ones appear !
It's been raining for the last couple of weeks and
after nearly getting out on Sunday I decided to
have a walk on Monday evening with Logan to
find the pond . I text Pete who said he would have
a walk and show us , like every good fisherman he
brought a rod and some tackle with him !!!
I'm so glad he did the pond reminded me of
the places I spent most of the school holidays .
We were soon catching little Perch as Pete
predicted , a few Roach as well at one point
I had about ten fish on the same maggot ,
Logan was busy finding a little Toad and
asking questions , he thinks Pete's great
because he knows so much about nature and
also Dinosaurs .
The float dipped yet again ''that's a little better''
and it was after a good scrap on Pete's rod ,
which by the way is a delight to use , a lovely
Perch well over a pound graced the net .
Just as predicted and only an average one!!!!
........... I 'll be back .

Nice writing. It evokes places we have all been at one time or another I guess.

''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.
