Conversation yesterday was very diverse, but included some pike fishing plans and the introduction of my grandson, Bryn, to the joys of angling. This task being undertaken by Benno (his uncle) and would see a complete cycle achieved.
|Benno at Loch Awe in 1990? He was around six years old and that is a|
13ft 2.75 lbs t/c, fast taper, Bruce & Walker HMC carbon rod.
It was around 1988/9 that Benno first started his angling apprenticeship, around the shores of Loch Awe before progressing to the delights of The Grand Union Canal and Tring Reservoirs. How will Bryn find this hobby? It is Benno's challenge to enthuse his nephew - simple! They went to Sandwich Coarse Fishery, this afternoon, and Bryn did what was required. Using a whip to hand, he managed to get his first fish - a perch of around a pound - the seeds have been planted!

An angler in the making? I have a feeling that it's in the genes!
