Much calmer and set fair!
The old barometer hasn't swung this far to the right for what seems like months. I have a sneaking suspicion it may go even further into uncharted waters next week. That's just fine for me as it's the last week of the coarse fishing season and as per usual there is a flurry of activity here at Straker Towers. Plans are hatched, tackle is assembled and polished, sandwiches made and picnics thought of, maggots curried and lobworms nurtured. High pressure at last knockings at seasons end is something to celebrate. No cowering under an Efgeeco brolly and damp escaping bait to contend with!
Before all that though it's time for a celebratory pint of Brancasters finest and a firm favourite of mine - Oyster Catcher. There will be much more of this over the next few days I can tell you. Spring is on its way!
