A working day so a short angling visit to a pool at first light and the last Premium Bonds draw of the year has been made

I was up just as the tide started to turn as far as the darkness was concerned.

I got dressed, made a flask of tea, loaded the car and was on the bank at what we call first light.

The timing was perfect.

As it’s a working day, the fishing session was just a short one on a pool.

There are lots of small roach in there, which is typical of this type of venue.

Although I was after something bigger – a perch to be precise – I don’t mind catching whatever comes along.
