Starting and Ending.

Well it feels like spring, when the
season ends for coarse fish on rivers
my attetion turns to the fly and Trout.
The past few years have showed me, it may
be another couple of weeks before our
spotty friends are settled and ready
for me to cast some fluff at them, on
running water.
Today I thought it more fitting to have
a go at a fish that signals the change
in season........ Tench it took a while
but a fish just over 4lb finnally graced
the net.

Last week was my last chance to land a
decent river coarse fish before season end.
I headed to the Ribble sat back and waited
after I lost a decent fish I thought I may
have blown it . I need not have worried.

One fish marks the end as the other the
start. Time to tie a few flies over the
next week or two then back to running water.

Looking Forward

So in the next few months things will change,
the weather will be warmer and the fishing
better, well at least more comfortable!

We had a trip out to the Dove and it's a
river we will return to no doubt. Both Phil
and I had good fish, the water looks capable
of throwing up a specimen or two.

We have also had our eyes on tempting
a large Roach locateing one may be the
task rather than even catching one.
Comercial fisheries seem to offer the best
chance, the only problem getting through
the other fish we managed a couple of
Roach amongst the multitudes of small
Another coarse fishing season is near it's
end and it's always a little sad to think
it will be a few months until I watch the
little red tip of my float trundle it's way
down stream. With the departure of one season
we welcome the new Trout season onto our rivers
and streams and the fly rod alows me to spend
time next to and in flowing water. Which reminds
me time for some new waders!!
I have got new ideas for the seasons ahead,
flies to tie, tackle to buy and things to try.
I think we will have some good days(and nights)
God willing and even writeing this I get kid
in a toy shop feeling!!
The picture above is what keeps me fishing
and in general makes life all that much brighter,
to share these moments with good friends is a gift.
I look back through this blog and it always brings a
smile. So I will be making more of an effort with
the blog this year.
Im looking forward to the fishing more than ever.

''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.
