Been stopping to smell the cow parsley a little bit and it's helped my lack of mojo a bit as water of some sort is usually involved even the path there is often a bit bendy. This road name is true Norfolk.

Not fished much lately, or done much more than work. I'd heard about a dewatering from Robbie of the North on the top beat of our river ticket, went to check the next day and saw this, much to my resigned horror and that of several canoeists. Not to the horror of a wild swimmer who was practising her best bedroom noises every time she dipped her head into the shrinking muddy ditch.

Plenty of insects down at the Mill in the week but not a hirundine in sight or sound. Wrong kind of insects? Perhaps they like the sort that used to encrust our wind screens and number plates.

I had a very short window this afternoon so I did chuck a puddle chucker about on Golden Pond to see if I could turn the mainly half hearted lifts I had yesterday into more positive bites.

It has rained in North Norfolkcestershire, twice in fact, which has made the garden sparkle when the sun comes out afterwards.
I got myself on to my Island Paradise this afternoon down in Golden Pond and despite missing several bites on link ledgered Source I managed to get three bream into the stink net. Water, weed and fish warm to the touch for the first time this year. First few rhodos out too. Think I'll try the puddle chucker next time to increase the chances converted ratio.

The Source. I've banged on about it for ages now but what a bait. I use it in 12mm size and a kilo bag lasts and keeps for absolutely ages as I usually top up the loose feed with 6-8mm pellets, and usually those would be Spicy Sausage as the Source ones are bit more expensive. I also have the wafters in about 15m.
Shorts again today, and the fiery ginger beer to celebrate not turning into a goose pimpled block of ice.
