50000 and counting

Was just answering a comment on here and noticed page views just passing 50000.  From the look of the stats it was a visitor from Doncaster.  So thanks to him or her and to all the people who read my ramblings. Strange thing this blogging . I never thought when I started it so many people would read it and from so many  places.

Anyway who and wherever you all are thanks.....

A dogs life.....

I reckon most who read this from the UK will relate to this.  Apologies from those of you from the nice warm places in the world  whom I know read these ramblings.   This winter has been wet , cold and downright miserable.  The couple of fishing trips I have managed since the end of the trout season did little to fend of the encroaching shack nasties.  Trips to the river are largely  ltd to walking the dog.  I have even struggled to get the invertebrate monitoring done.  Something that at least gives me chance to have a paddle about in a stream. When I have been able to do it I have now got a new trainee. She is getting the hang of it but its slow work.


She thinks I am a bit of a tart bothering with waders and thermals she thinks you should just get in and go for it...



I reckon I should learn from her though it doesnt matter what the weather is doing or what else is going on nothing meets just messing about in the river....
