Wild fishing

The alarm sounded and unlike a work
day it was easy to get out of bed.
The swim would I imagined, be full
of big Tench feeding after my groundwork
from the previous evening....Well maybe
not full but just one fish would be a reward.
I arrived at 5am and was relieved
to see my spot empty.
The odd fish roled has I made my first cast.
Everything looked perfect and on Q my
float slipped away the strike though was
without luck.
I just hoped my chance had not slipped
away in those few seconds. A re-cast
and almost before the float settled
away it sailed,this time the strike
was met by a solid "Bang" and the line
peeled off the reel,a good fish. It gave
a good acount of itself the previous nights
work had payed off.
A nice fish of 6.2lb.I will be back for
one of the big ones!

Nice tench, was this one of the waters you were telling me about?
I may try them after my exams.
I'm going to give the yarrow a go on the fly this weekend.

Yes it's the water, give us a bell sometime and I will show you, It's not easy, some big fish hit the top at night not sure what they are but they make you jump! they don't show it's like a brick... savage we think Pike or big Perch having fry or it could even be massive Rudd and Im talking big!!

I'll give you a call, probably around late June when my exams finish and after then I'll start the fishing properly. I'll be on the bank more than I'll be at home.

''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.
