A Quick Fix

Well after getting my first blank of the
New Year out of the way Friday it was
on my mind to get the first fish .
Basically A Quick Fix was needed.
So I scored a few brownie points
with the good lady , hoping I may
get a late cast on the local brook.
Time was ticking by and it was just
the last hour before dark that I made
my first cast , my only bait was bread
I was hopeful of a few Roach , but the
previous outing and reports of hard
goings on most water left my confidence
a bit dented .
Ten minutes past before a couple of little
Roach broke my 2009 duck.
Then followed a Trout out of season and
on bread !
It was lean but well marked .
The white edges is something I find
shows a fish off ''very nice'' , a quick snap
with the camera and back to the Roach.
A couple more small fish next before I finished
the short session with two better fish , just
what the doctor ordered ... better now .

''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.
