Last Hour............ the life of me

Well at least I can blog, after over
a month my internet conection is still
causing me great problems, they lived up
to their name because of the amount of
time I have had to "Talk Talk" with no action!!
My one trip on the Dee was also tainted with
me seeing my camera float past me
"That looks just like my camera case"
I thought when i caught site of it making it's
way down stream.
Along with more time I have had to spend at work,
the Kids are growing and I both need and want to
spend time with them both. So my new fly rod has
gone almost the whole year upto now with hardly
a cast. So the last hour has been a saviour.
Setting up the rod when the night falls is
though a bit special, a whole new world comes to
life when the sun fades and the moon is bright.

Jeff also took me to a nice spot not far away
and some great fish. I remember a book from when
I was a kid , it had a large net of Bronze Bream
and olive green Tench n one page. Well if I had
a keepnet one night I think I would have come close
to my Childhood dreams.

I think with the river season starting soon it
may be the inspiration I need to find a few
more hours but for now it's a night float
and warm clothes.

I might fish the stretch of the Ribble we were on last year, on the 17th. See if I can get one of those barbel.

May go thinking of a day off.

''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.
