|The set-up today - KM rod pod with Gardner rests and bars.|
A Duncan Kay with my Match Aerial and the Bruce & Walker Mk IV and Mitchell 300.
|Me with a tench - it's been a long time!|
Sadly, it was not the immaculate creature I had envisaged, its' mouth was badly deformed due to frequent visits to the bank; captured by anglers using heavy carp tackle and, almost certainly, barbed hooks (contrary to the fishery rules!) Benno came round and captured the moment - happy daze!
|You work that out - there's definitely some bream in there somewhere - but what else?|
Back home by 18.30 hrs - I had the moth trap to check, my birds to feed plus water the window boxes and hanging baskets - oh then I could cook my dinner! The trap was quite busy - the first Common Wainscot, Flame Shoulder and Lime Hawk-moth of 2015 plus good numbers of Diamond Backs. Temperatures look pretty good for tonight - let's see what tomorrow brings?
|I don't give a monkey's about rarity - these are the creatures that make mothing such an enjoyable pursuit|
