On Golden Pond

Mike mentioned that he may get a few hours
out and fancied a local pond it was one my Dad
took me in my early fishing days.
Mike rang to say he was catching but I had
only just got home, the rain was falling and
I rated my chances as low but as you may
guess a couple of hours later I was by the
waters edge Mike was into a nice fish within
moments of my arrival , he had only caught
smallish ones until then.

It turned out to be a nice Tench.
My first put in brought me a nice Roach
on worm, this continued good steady fishing.
A few missed bites and I Said to Mike
I think Skimmer Bream have arrived
the next fish confirmed my suspicions
Mike gave me some pinkies I soon realised
why he was using pellets!!
Mike was into another fish it circled around
Crucian carp was what we guessed at.
We guessed rite a lovely little fish .
I may now get to take my Dad fishing
for the first time in four years just need
a little warm weather he will be happy
to catch fish like the one Mike had.
I remember him sitting for hours in
the same spot as Mike fished over thirty
years ago catching the same sort of fish.

''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.
