A nice tench to round off a short morning session

After the recent rain – which was very welcome, by the way – we’re now back to a dry spell again.

Everything has freshened up though in the meantime and, whether the garden or the wider natural world, it looks good.

I was up early again this morning and I put the kettle on and loaded the car.

I can be ready to go in hardly any time at all, which is ideal when you fish as much as I do.

My gear is organised and everything is in its place, which makes going fishing very easy and straightforward.
