A little bit of exitement!

Im going out for a run!

Right, Im gagging to get back to the kellie for a bit of dry fly action. I cant be bothered getting all my stuff together heading down there just to find that its all muddy so I have a cunning plan. Instead of heading down to the gym I am going to go for a [...]
