A morning angling session followed by church and the big game!

We haven’t had that much rain in recent weeks, therefore it was refreshing to see the heavens open – albeit persistent rather than torrential – during the night.

You know you’re getting older when your first thought is that it will be good for the garden.

Then, of course, as an angler you always appreciate rain after a prolonged spell of mostly dry weather.

Although you think of flowing water, it’s also good for ponds, lakes and pools as well.
