As it was a bit of a social,time to catch up and have a chat we set up in fairly close proximity to each other.I was sandwiched in the middle.Gruff had the first action with a screaming take that dropped off quickly.Typical Gruff response and a string of expletives littered the Sussex countryside.You just cannot take him anywhere.Much mirth from KCI and I,but god can the man scowl when he looses a fish.Not to worry he was soon into another fish that tailed walked and shook her head and gave us a great show.Safely netted and weighed and a nice mid double was photographed and slipped back.
Next up was KCI and a small Jack that at first thought it was a large Pike such was the way the float shot away at speed.After this fish,KCI lost another while my baits were unmolested all day.I was getting some right stick,but when you have two people fishing either side of you,your bound to struggle right?
Now the weather forecast promised a lovely sunny day,but around noon it started to pour with rain,the kind that the wind brings straight into your face.So as well as blanking,I was getting soaked too,not fun.But the two chaps kept up their barbed comments up until we packed up.Thank you lads it was very welcome being made aware of my short comings!A smashing venue,cracking wind ups and an all round nice session.And we will see you in a few weeks mate as Gruff and I can't wait to get back.
Lastly this made me laugh in the week from Wednesdays Times.With the Jimmy Saville affair making the headlines and the Badger cull being put back,Peter Brooks has again come up with another well observed cartoon.He is in my opinion bang on the money with this one.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you are on the bank tight lines.
