You're getting double bubble tonight you lucky bleeders..
I've been dodging the 42 inch net police for several years, managing I thought well enough with a couple of 36 inch nets, whch eventually sucumb to either angry pike/carp or the cumulative effect of lots of little cuts to free snagged trebles. For about 25 quid fair dos and my current net will still be pressed into action until the inevitable collapse. Which is not long awway.
However enquiring glances from the afore said 42 inch net police and a couple of lost fish have turned my head. Think the last two lost at the net would have gone in first time with a bigger net,and if I can find a robust extendable handle even better. Why a standard 6 foot handle, always?
Now I am not going to fall for the must have 190 quid jib (I kid you not). No a 25 quid job again! (Good old Eric's Angling). It came today and it is a thing of beauty. Light, graceful and yes, six inches bigger. Though considerably less in the girth.
Beer and all that..thougt it was about time to head over to the beer tasting tent and dish up #6 I think of the tasteathon. Proper beer in a proper bottle with a proper label. Lancaster Amber it says here.
Smooth malt, balanced with tangy and spicy hops blah, blah, blah. Come on chaps , it is simply a nice easy drinking session beer ( 3.6%) with that lingering get me more taste. Splendid. Shame I only had the one bottle.
