I have just returned form a lunchtime walk down the river with Poppy and bumped into a couple of lads who fish the beat below me. I asked if they'd had anything, spinning started on the river today and it is usually very productive at this time of year. Sadly one of them had lost a fresh fish off about 25lb. He had it in and out of the smallish net on four occasions - the curse of the small net strikes again - Gutted!
It looks perfect and i look forward to getting back there on Sunday!
