Cold Day Warm Glow

Well winter arrived this week , the clocks moved
and the days became short and cold even a bit of
But you cant not go on the river can you?
So Phil , Mike and myself decided the
Ribble would be worth a cast or two.

Even in the cold a Grayling is always willing
to feed and this was very much on our minds
As we arrived the weather was milder than on
the previous few days even so I put two pair of
waders on and wrapped up warm.
The first place we tried did not bring much
Phil taking a little Grayling on his new Hardy

I fancied a glide and mentioned to Phil on our way
past we should give it a try ,I had a few fish
mostly Trout out of season but a nice Grayling
just over a pound was a good result.

Phil moved to his favourite spot taking a few Trout
and a lovly grayling pictured below .

It's unavoidable catching the odd Trout a
quick snap and return .

While Phil was having fun with his new rod I
took Mike to a spot Ilike for Chub , he was
soon trotting the float and into a fish and just
as predicted a Chub of around 2lb was soon in
the net . Almost imedeatly he was in again
this one better over 3lb it slipped back before
we got it's picture .
One last cast in Phils glide saw Mike finish with
a lovly little SeaTrout .

Another ver nice day on the river with
good company a cold day that left me
with a warm glow !

Was very productive for a short session - and great fun.

''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.
