Winter is still holding on but, whatever the weather, the fishing continues

Although it’s nice that we’ve had some very pleasant spring-like weather of late, this morning was a reminder that winter hasn’t totally given up its hold on us just yet.

Before I could set off from the drive, I had to scrape ice from the windshield. Not thick but, nevertheless, I still needed the scraper that I keep in the car.

Once that was sorted, I was on my way for an hour on a pool.

With a working game later in the day – and a 12.45 p.m. kick-off at that – it was short by necessity.
