So today I had one of those crazy â€œI think I am going to drown momentsâ€. I had waded out to the middle of the river that I was fishing. Rather foolhardy really. It was difficult fishing in the wind and you had to get yourself into particular positions to be able to present a [...]
I think I fixed all the links……have added small stream photos to gallery, better layout.

What you [...]
