Im utterly soaked. After completing all my chores I went for a few hours…I couldnt help myself. Rewarded within a half hour with 2 lovely trout. The first was around the pound mark….a real special for the river. It jumped out the water a few times as well. The second was around a quarter of […]

Im going out for a run!
