I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

Duffer comes good....

I joined JT for more urban river explorations. We waded into what used to be a veritable sewer running through a local town centre. The water was largely very clear but the banks still spoke of the years of neglect. No manicured lawns or carefully tidied banks. Instead, we stepped over bricks and tyres and shopping trolleys and god knows what else.

Still, two drifted nymphs brought us some beautifully coloured brown trout, their bellies sporting a dash of butter gold.

Even I managed to persuade the lovely brownie above to leave the river and spend some time aloft. 2 and a half pounds was the guessed weight - good enough for this duffer.

A few quick snaps and the fish was returned to fight another day.


  1. Easily two and a half if not 2lbs 12oz!

    Well done. Your tutor is probably the best there is these days...


  2. Sounds a good trip and an even better looking Brownie. It is nice to see you posting once more Alan.

    kind regards

  3. Hi Alan, how do I join JT so that I can also experience more river exploration for my fishing dvd's?
