New Water

Today was going to be the day that
I got back onto a river or so I thought!
I had to put some wall paper up. Logan
is having is bedroom decorated so
Saturday after rugby training I gave
my Dad a ring.
"Give me a lift" I said.
Having fished for years my dad was
soon at the house helping. I thought
that;s it free day Sunday.
I looked at the phone "1 message"
kick off 11 am . My lad had a game.
With luck I would be back at dinner.
We had to wait Logan won a trophy.
Very few things are worth me missing
time by the river but the look on his
face meant this was one for sure!!
It was later and again my phone had a
message it was Pete.
"Fancy exploring @~~@+ upstream"
Literally saved by the bell.

We got the map out 10 to 15 minutes we were
looking at some nice water and quite close to home.
A few of out of season Trout means this water
will be visited with the fly come spring.
A couple of Chub made us wonder what surprises
the river may hold.
Not a bad day at all in the end.

Yes it's nice another little stream so close. May have another wander, only thing is finding a bait Chub like but Trout don't.

''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.
