Sizzle Sizzle – although no trout for the BBQ

Another hot hazy day down at the other river that I fish. I arrived at the water around 0930 and then almost had to come straight back home again. Once I set up my rod etc I found that my tippet material was once again giving me a bit of jip – it kept snapping [...]
