We had seen the last boat barrel into the bridge and it had barely thrashed its way
free when we arrived.
Looking for water
Over the years more fish come from areas containing particular features than come
Matters of greed
.....a pointless exercise in the bloody minded refusal to use bait.
Winds of change
Suddenly two hours had passed and the wind was biting like a rabid dog.
More ice with it
...from a strip of water less than a foot wide that remained unfrozen...
Clarity of thought
a couple of times I made a determined effort to knock the fish off
The big perch fairy
Somewhere, somehow, a switch has been thrown by someone.
I wonder if we put the same effort in to understanding why we struggle...
My first fish hooped the rod over and raced around...
Feel my pain
...lure fishing is without a doubt the worst method going for causing backache.
Four spice, same as it ever was.
Logic says they have just moved back, but God only knows, I don’t.
all the morning's despondency leaks away like the air from a badly tied balloon.
