It is a little bit chastening coming in here. Months since my last post and five weeks into the trout season and I have not even strung up a rod. What is going on?
Well of course the answer is apparently simple but actually really quite complex. Life happens. Fishing is a passion of mine, it is not an obsession. I draw a huge amount of pleasure and satisfaction from the time that I spend fishing but that applies to other activities that I do. And these are the nice things that have to be fitted around all of the other more important facets of my life – work, domestic and family commitments. I appreciate that all of us have these various commitments, I just wish I had more time.
But I am hoping to be able to fish a little more this year. I have just finished wrapping this rod and tied up a couple of flies. Mayfly is just around the corner. Let’s get going…..
