To Whom It May Concern:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to complain about the lack of spring time weather we have been experiencing over the last two weeks.

I would have hoped that by now there would be plenty of lambs in the fields, trees starting to bud, the sun on my face and more importantly flies having vigorous sex above the rivers of Scotland. However, I was disappointed to find a fresh flurry of snow which had once again made every trout within a 100 mile radius of Glasgow freeze motionless with shock at the bottom of rivers and lochs.

I am not saying that it has all been bad you understand, I have noted particularly nice weather between the hours of 9pm – 5pm Monday to Friday. However I find this unacceptable as only students and layabouts are able to take advantage of this sunny boon while hard working gentle folk like me are forced to read the reports of these individuals of leisure with what I can only describe as a bitter taste in our mouths.

It does not help when these people send emails full of pictures of enormous brown trout either.

I note that last year spring came early and a rather fantastic early season was had on the rivers that my friends and I fish. However the rest of the season was then an absolute washout due to cold temperatures and rain. As recompense I am hoping that this year you are planning a miserable spring and a rather fantastic summer where the blue winged olives and sedges will never stop hatching and the trout will be eager and plentiful.

Kind Regards

Alistair Stewart

    i have found a tube containing three sections that seem to fit into each other to form a long pole type thingy. It has lots of little hoops all the way along it and a nice cork handle. I also seem to have a round thing full of stringy stuff. This may be attachable to the pole,also a box full of some rather nasty little jaggy things, colourfull though. …………….
