Staying up late for the Premium Bonds results, getting up early to go fishing and can we call the police if there’s a dog in the swim?

Talking of happiness, I was up a few hours later to go fishing.

It’s a going-to-work-day later, so it was always going to be a short session

Short, but hopefully sweet.

However, that wasn’t the case.

Fishing the margins of a small pool, I had a very active pike in the area.

It was only a couple of pounds or so but its presence had a major impact on the angling, as you can imagine.
