Last Outing

Today was in all likelihood the last outing
of this coarse season on the rivers .
I really enjoyed the last few hours last week on
the River Dane so made my mind up to get out
again this week.
I decided that today would be a nice time to get the
pin out , and made my mind up to try the swim from
last week. I soon found that the wind was a bit stronger
and had a bite of cold in it . My reason for fishing the pin
is because I like it so much , but the closed face is also
a very enjoyable way to trot a float down the stream.
I now think on the Dane the closed face is a more useful
reel , it allows you to both fish slower water with lighter
floats better .
I hooked into another animal today , now I'm
gaining confidence in my Normark I Lent into
the fish hard , the glide as a bad snag and the
fish know only too well how to find it!! after a good
struggle the hook pulled .
The swim died but a move brought me a couple
of nice Chub .

The weather turned a bit nasty so that ended my
day and another season , looking forwards now to the
Trout season opening .

Some nice fish there to end the season with.

My mission from next week will be to land a 2lb Brownie.

Hopefully it should take too long;)

I think we may get a realy good one, the one I had last year was around the 2lb mark and I have seen a fish a few weeks back that would be close on 4lb at a guess .
I would like to hit a big one on a new lite rod which I may treat my self too , mmmmm .

''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.
