Back Blogin

Im back ................ a mixture over the last few weeks
brought my blogin too a minimum .
The laptop broke and was away being fixed,
the day I got it back was also the day before
the family Holidays.
So a bit of belated updates of my angling over the last month.

Again if possible my time is around running water the rains have
both helped and stopped my fishing on occasions. A good night on
the Ribble brought me a mixed bag two good trout in very fast
water was very rewarding.
The Barbel have been a little patchy just the odd fish the one
below around 8lb the best. Mikes son is a dab hand with the
camera and took some good shots he's not shy on the one liners
either and I spent most of the night laughing at his jibes at me and
his dad.
I spent a very warm day with Pete in fact it was so hot
we came home early!!!
One decent Chub was all I could manage along with a few Dace.
Spent a few hours with Logan at Petes local pond
the little un got well into it at the end much too my
Rob invited me too the Hodder , we arrived too see the river in
a most perfect level and colour, It almost screamed that a few
SeaTrout may be around and so it turned out as within the first
hour we had landed three and lost a couple.
We also had some nice Browns in what was the best evening on the
Hodder for a few years.
Rob hit into a heavy fish it's dull fight made Rob think
it was foul hooked I waded out to net it and for a second in
the dark thought the large silver flank was of a good Sea Trout
alas it was a Sea Chub.
My attempts at a Bass on Holiday.... conditions
against me wild in the morning too say the least.
Last evening I got another few hours with Rob and the river looked
good again . The fishing was very hard just Three Browns.

So my Laptops back , a good break and a few fish,
Mikes been away too and Petes not been too well
I hope too get out on the Dane with Phil, our last
attempt was met with a river of "MUD" .

I end all this on a very sad note the day of my return
was met by the news of my Uncle John passing away.
I will always remember the days we spent fishing
both when I was a kid and later, the day we found
one of my favourite swims on the Ribble the look he gave
me as we both knew it must be stuffed with fish .
What more can you say a good man who will be missed
but remembered only with happiness.
"God Bless"

''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.
