A Red Head

What a week, mini heat wave and a
day off work. A call to Pete saw us
on a quest for Tench.
The effort was put in but the Tench
did not show up, we did get some,
fish, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Perch and
I did see a large Perch(Pete) taking fry
in the margins, I managed to hook
a decent fish but lost it.
Three small Pike at least means a fish
off the list.
Sunday and the Tench was still on my mind.
The last couple of hours of day and into
dusk seemed the best chance and so it
turned out.
I muttered to myself after returning
the last of around thirty skimmer
Bream "last cast" the float dipped and
the rod arched into a my target, a fin
perfect fish at 4.14lb. That rounded the week
off and got me thinking of one a bit bigger.

Those are some nice fish and pics to boot. That perch looks like it would eat the ones I am used to catching around here! Nice job on that last whopper of a 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.
