I went fishing yesterday for the first time since opening day.
I arrived on the river at 7.30am.. Fished for two hours without seeing a sausage. Stopped for a break and watched a fellow fisherman going through a pool that was my next target. He fished it for 45 minutes (beautifully) without any joy.
However, I was bored by then, packed up and went home.
As luck would have it I was to loose 1 other a day or two after the above post July 11th .... But I my perseverance paid off today.
This is one of the more memorable fish I've ever landed, it covered 150/60ft in one run with me tightening the drag which didn't make any odds, it was near 15 minutes of bullying before I got it beat.
