A...n..d ..... Relax

Today was a chance to snatch a few hours
out , I sort of had a plan to nip down to the
river Dane. I was up early with the kids
Logan was doing his school project Scarlett
had found a new love for Mince pie's .

I had just made breakfast when
Melanie's Mum n Dad arrived, we got
talking and looking at old photos
and before we realized the morning
had almost gone.
Mike phoned to say he may snatch
a few hours on my local brook?
I had sort of built my hopes on a few
Grayling alas the better part of me said
I should take the kids to the park
and then catch the last couple of hours
with Mike and so it turned out

The little brook is shallow and it's hard to
believe the quality of fish you can catch
Mike was busy fishing when I arrived.

Setting up light for the Roach is a must the
better one's are shy fluro line 1.10lbs with
a 20's hook under a little float does the job
I use a pole float it's just rite. Again I use
the same method I feed and don't rush to
fish . A steady trickle of Maggots today's
choice was regularly fed while I fixed up
the rod . First run and first fish not a bad
start . A a few seconds later I was into a
better fish my hopes for a Roach where
dashed an out of season Trout the culprit,
a quick snap , I wrote a few weeks back
on how well marked the fish from this brook
are the photo shows what I mean.

Mike was well impressed he soon was looking
at my set up and was changing his float
and the results were instant.
We both had a good amount of quality Roach
at a rough guess we had 30 odd fish between
us almost all Roach ...... 2 Trout and a perfect
little Pearch.

We carried on into the evening and Mike
finally called it quits when he lost the ability
to see . A nice few hours spent with good
company after a week at work it's a case of
get on the bank..... A...n..d....Relax all ready
for a new week .

''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.
