Learning to Fly Fish

The National Trust estate where I volunteer on has a number of fishing beats for fly fishing.  The season has just finished so the river keeper invited us to have a day on one of the beats to try fly fishing (Not sure anyone caught anything though!).  Bacon sandwiches on arrival then BBQ’d trout for lunch.  Very nice.  I liked the simplicity of the setup.  You have a rod, a reel, a landing net, and some flies.  That’s all you need.

When you’ve got a friend

Every Monday I’m out in the woodyard making firewood.  Eventually it might get cold in the UK and more people will buy it.  Not at the moment though. Tomorrow is due to be the warmest Halloween on record.  I digress.  Every Monday this little chap appears (or there’s more than one and they all look the same).
