This week has had a mix of fortunes. Easter Sunday was a a long arranged fishing trip when two friends were to join me to fish my home beck. The day started at the beach at 9.30 and we fished our way upstream. It toook four hours to fish up a mile or so, There was much barracking and encouragement , My two companions at one point acted as fish spotters from a vantage point above a pool as I briefly was in contact with what would have been the largest fish of the day. We all know that feeling as a the line gos slack. This was made worse by the audience. The day overall however was extremely enjoyable enough fish were caught and the company was excellent. There is something special about sharing your home stream with guests, I know the pleasure of fishing a new water . I guess the only thing better is guiding others whilst they do the same.
