Well That's May Out The Way
I'll end this month on a positive note, as it's soon time to cut down my "Bloging" owing to the river season starting soon. More fishing and less posting of nonsense ;-).So instead of my inane ramblings every other day or so you'll only have to put up with them around twice a week or so,unless I spot something that makes me cross.And what doesn't ?
I'll include my angling trips(maybe),but not the venues as I feel that is unfair to other anglers.Unless busy day ticket places like the Royalty,where everyone knows about the venue.
Firstly well done to Tamim Iqbal who had a great "knock" at Lords yesterday for Bangladesh.I listened to Test Match special and it was some "knock".The lad scored 103 in a 100 balls.With 15 fours and two sixes.In the commentary box "Aggers" and "Tuffers" made the match sound great.They work well together.And Iqbal now gets his name on the Lords honours board for all eternity.I think most England supporters wanted him to get it,when he was on 71,and played a little shaky for a while.
Secondly to Dagenham and Redbridge for gaining promotion to League One,for next season after beating Rotheram United at Wembley yesterday.Our Milkman at work has been following them for years and years.So I'm well chuffed for him.Proper supporter,the guy.
Moving on.........I was in my local tackle shop yesterday to pick up some "bits".And it was bit's,just line and hooks for the new season but a few things caught my eye.
A packet of Nashy Fang hook's cost a fiver !Jesus wept that's bloody pricey.I also saw some leads that supposedly have a "weed covering" on them.Three quid a "pop" these.Not on your nelly lads would I be mug enough to buy these.Also does one now have to dress in an appropriate manner to go into an angling store ?Every one bar Monty was in green or camo,with ESP baseball caps on.Or Nashy this and ESP that.I felt under dressed in a polo shirt,jeans and a pair of of suede loafers.Perhaps I'm not hip anymore ?I'll come back to tackle shop etiquette later in the season as what I heard yesterday made me laugh.
I've added a few photo's to get us salivating for these last two weeks.And I would like to say I hope you all(yes even you):-) have a great and productive season.
As ever its just my view from Yat Rock.Phew I'll go for a pint or two now me thinks.
