Catching Up

The time for catching up is here I think.
This blog has been a very interesting
hobby for me. Around this time of
year it often slips a little. Its a record
of my fishing and on a cold day, the
thoughts of days well spent can be
most welcome.
The top photo was the view from the tent
on a couple of days camping in the Lakes.

Logan with a Perch I could only snatch
an hour or so, but the fishing was good.
I would imagine we may well go back!!
Some more photos of the last few weeks
Even though time as been curtailed the few
trips brought some good fishing.
Me and David have talked over the last couple of
years about a morning fishing...... well it finally
happened! It was a good morning even though the
river was up a little we managed a few fish.
The wading was a bit mad but with the chances of
the next trip being some time we had a go!

Pete with a Grayling, I told Pete he would
Love the Dane and I think I was rite. We have
spent a couple of evenings fishing until we could
not see the float. The method we fish on here has
brought some good fish for us.
We know some good fish live in the river
but getting them out is not easy.
Another thing the blogs given me is
the ability to capture the things we see
when out fishing. A love for nature.
I love taking photos and it's something
that I hope to "develop" pardon the pun!
I have an affinity with Chub I'm
always glad to see them. Maybe
it's because of memory's? Or even just
the fact that it's more or less guaranteed
that I'm by the river when in ones company.
Mike with a nice Dane Chub on the pin of
Well my dad loves rivers I'm still looking for
a nice spot with a short walk and good footing.
Until then it's a bit of carp bashing.
An afternoon on the pellet wagler brought
me a sore arm with a fish a chuck!!
We took Logan for another visit but not
so much joy we still managed one or two.
Logan helps his Grandad it's a joy to see.
Logan thinks the fish are daft
"if Grandad can catch them!!"
Well the fish race takes me up one more a Ruffe.
Another blogger spent a little time on the
river with me, again I have been saying
to Kerwin for some time we will get out
but that word "time" just not enough
of it for me!!! Not great, the water was up,
if I had not been promising him the trip
I wouldn't of gone he did manage a nice
Brown trout .
The nights have been getting shorter and the
rain makes the river a little unsure, so a bit of
late evening slider fishing at a local gravel pit.
I have really enjoyed this, it's taken me back to
being a kid, I can set off late and fish until.....
well "late" it's better than the TV.
As the night falls big fish move we are
not certain what they are, some are Tench
the big Bream but I suspect the odd
monster Rudd are also still in the waters.
Even though we did not catch a big one
Phil got to see the kind of fish I kept telling
him about with the one he caught below......
This story is only just starting I imagine.

''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.
