So where were we ? Oh back to fishing as I would not like this blog, to be seen as an "Bash The BS " blog.Though I do not think I really bash 'em.Just take the piss,as I do out of myself and others.But they do make it sooooooooo easy.
So anyway the girls and I have been to see Toy Story Three ,and I have paid for lunch and they are zooming across Surrey to go to IKEA.Are women not mad ?So I can "pop" this up.
The trip to the Estate Lake was called off late Friday night,sad but a midweek trip next week is on the cards.So two of us headed across country again to fish for Barbel.And It was a hard and dour struggle.
We fished from 06.30 until just after 19.00 hrs.I had four Barbel and my mate had three.Not a fish after 14.30.Now as ever I roamed about all day,just sitting on a mat,while my mate more or less fished static.I had one of those "Click 'ometer thingys on" and I covered around six miles up and downstream.And I was knacked by the end.
I only managed one fish per swim and I cast into about sixteen swims.One swim, I had a fish first cast,put a bait back out and the rod were pulling etc.More fish from here Monty I thought.Nope an Adder,I kid you not slid over my rucksack,followed by one more.In the words of all Leeds fans RUN (Sorry Rob) ;-).
I could have fished the old "Caster and Hemp" way.But sitting in one swim in the summer is not for me.Even though It does produce.But fishing a swim that's a "Banker" is boring I'm afraid,I like to try and catch from new swims.Here is a photo from yesterday,no need to photo any of the fish I caught though.As they were all between I guess five and six pound.?
See that not a crossed word or piss take.And let's hope August brings us love and harmony ?
Lastly go and see Toy Story Three,It's not just a kids film to be honest.Many have watched the first two,but this is different class.I had a HUGE lump in my throat at the end.And my 18 year old stepdaughter said "Call yerself facking West Ham ?".OK she did not,but we three were all moved.
Monty D a much kinder person in August.
PS I'm not really worried about "Followers",but to the 11 anonymous chaps,why ?Are you ashamed to read this blog ?Or is it a grubby secret like a porn mag ?.Just wondered like.
