I have no answers, but am happy to read the varied postings of other guys who also feel the need to air their thoughts in a public arena; I find comfort in the fact that I'm not unique!
It could simply be an age thing? Not that it is of any real importance - just a single thought amidst masses of others. Work continues to dominate my life, we are in Saturday and Sunday this weekend, just to keep up with our burgeoning order levels. A fantastic result for the marketing department and senior management strategy of factory efficiencies and continuous improvement projects. Confidence in the ability of FSIS to manufacture and deliver quality inks must be at an all time high?
I spoke with Benno, earlier today, and he is buzzing about the prospect of getting back to the R. Stour. The start of the season is "Father's Day" - Sunday 16th June. He already has plans to fish a particular swim, I will wait and see what pans out. I went back to Dragon Carp Direct, this morning, and purchased another Matt Hayes "Limited Edition" centrepin (No. 56 - I already own No. 55) so that I now have a matching pair with which to pike fish the RMC later in the year. Before then, however, I hope to spend some time in pursuit of Chub and Barbel, the pleasure of catching fish from flowing water is hard to beat.
