The fat lady will soon be singing…

I’m over the cold weather now. I do hope we get a consistent spell of mild, rain-free weather before the end of the season. Fortunately the last four weeks of the river season – and the last fortnight especially – usually provide some great fishing, even when it is cold.

It must be something to do with that extra hour or so of daylight that wakes the fish from their winter slumber and with the snowdrops poking through, things just feel a little more positive from here on in.

Britford is on the agenda before the 15th March and I’d like to try for a Wye pike or barbel before it’s all over for another season.

I'm already looking forward to getting into the sea and chucking a lure around some quiet coves in the summer
