If you ever get the chance to become a tenant or even an owner of some nice fishing water, it is highly recommended that you find the money somehow and take it on. Today in Duck Holds Wood, only three furlongs long but big and meandering so you never feel restricted, being alone with Henry was especially joyful.
The dry fly fishing here is very good. Monsters are rare but the numbers of "lesser" fish are such that, now May is with us properly, one couldn't imagine failing to catch a few nice wild brown and wild rainbow trout. Whilst setting up the rod a drake landed on Henry's head for an instant. Your blogger took the hint and put on a Hair Winged Mayfly (HWM) to begin proceedings.
The only "skills" needed today were stealth, some quiet, contemplative observation and a few careful casts to "where the fish are".
Don't let anything get in the way of your fishing in the next four or five weeks!
