We set up in brilliant, hot sunshine and just like the weekend it then thrummed down and went quite dark.

Heavy rain and a wet visitor.

The next time the sun came out Bear opened his account.

A chap who has been caught many times by the look of his mouth.

A very chuffed Bear.

Half an hour later and number two.

Handsome, ten pounder and I had to watch as Bear released him by my rods, grrrrrrr, well done sweetheart, grrrrr.

AT LAST. I would have settled for a small eel by this point. I was fishing the margin next to me with my left rod, I could have leaned down and stroked them.........this chap gave a good fight but many more were shrewd and pushed my hook out of the way on several occasions.

The next chap had to be bathed in readiness for his picture – he gave us both a good laugh and counts as the half in Bear’s total.

I had to make do with feeding my now dry friend.

A bit smug with this lovely boy. Grrrrr but I have won the last twice. Pleased for me (silent growling) Yes, dear.
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL A DESERVING WIN GRRRRRRR
                     SOME SUCCESS AT LAST, PITY ABOUT THE MUD
