........lowest ebb. So the old saying goes. I am fully signed up to this and only just start to come out of the gloom into February when the first of the snowdrops appear. After the Twelfth Night celebrations I sort of go into hibernation - sod all this get fit new year resolution malarkey. Who really wants all that during the glooming time of the year? Most folks just want to curl up in front of the fire with a syrup pudding open the port and just get through it, me included.......until about now.
There has been a paucity of posts and there is good reason - been too cold to go fishing, too cold and grim to do anything. But I do sense we may be breaking through to the other side. I do feel we are on the cusp of something. The light is changing, the birds are louder and the sun of the last few days is slightly warming when out of the wind. I even thought of dusting down the fly tackle in readiness for the spring! No doubt it will all come crashing down before then, but at the moment there is the end of this coarse fishing season to look forward to - anyone for a pike?
