On Friday the sun shone and the wind didn't blow, although it was misty first thing.
After all that hard work it was back to the fishing, plenty of roach and gudgeon again so I decided that it would be an early start next morning, fishing that is. After slinging plenty of ground bait in I started at 06.00. All the maggots had gone so it was sweetcorn on the hook,
Today we set off fairly early, watered at Wheelock and set off up the flight. There was a hire boat ahead of us, the lady from it asked how many locks there were and her face fell when I told her twenty six. They winded above the first lock and headed back the way they had come, they really should have invested in a Nicholsons.
Well I was lockie today,
We've moored out in the country again, just above lock fifty five.
Watch this space.......
