With all the media hype of football on TV & Radio, for somebody that cannot abide the game at all no matter what nation is playing I had to get away & currently carrying an injury the mountains were ruled out so after a long break (9th April) being the last trip out with the rod.
I opted to get my feet wet again.
The rivers were are low and I knew it would be a day of not much fish moving but I was determined to get a wet net.
Moving back upstream to the first decent bit of deeper water I concentrated on the high oxygenated parts of the water & sure enough within a few moments lifted into my first decent fish of the day, which turned out the be a Grayling.
I continued to fish the faster water & struck into a further 3 Grayling but on my haste to get out I hadn't charged the battery on the camera, thinking that it would be OK, I was wrong the camera did not even have enough power to open up the lens shutter. Not to worry they were OK fish but no record breakers so I wasnt disappointed about not getting a photograph but I did manage to get my net wet & thats what I had come for.
A nice couple of hours away from all the media hype Now the TV is off & Im sat typing up the blog, what could be better.
