An unexpected work-related call and the importance of getting your priorities right plus I still managed to cast a line anyway

As I’ve stated several times in my blog in recent months, I’m exploring my semi-retirement.

I actually enjoyed the afternoon very much: it’s a friendly place, easy-going and nice people.

If you can tick those boxes then they are big pluses.

I could quite easily have said that I wasn’t available, after all it was a sudden request.

However, for as much as I love my angling – and I was about to head off – I’m also a big believer in getting your priorities right.
