As they say a bad days fishing is better than a good day at work- So when I was given the choice to work for the afternoon or go try my luck down at the river…well the choice was pretty easy- I was definately going fishing! Or maybe I should rephrase that and say I was definately going to take my rod for a walk. The sun was barely managing to push through the clouds and scattered showers were passing by along with a lazy wind…so all in all it was pretty darn cold. The river was still fairly high after the last lot of rain but was by all means clear enough for the fish to see those lovely bright spoons getting dragged through the water…or was it? It should have been but with countless casts and changes of lures and still not even a strike I came to the conclusion that the fish must have been too cold to eat! Well thats my excuse and I am sticking to it. So next time I venture out to the river I might have to wipe the cobwebs off my flyrod and give that a try again!
