Yep!...A T-shirt and shorts a warm evening a rod out for the eels and a float out for anything that takes my bait in peaceful surroundings on a stillwater.

The magical feeling of what do i have on the end of this to me are the joys of fishing?

I love float fishing :)

 

A bit early for that dream but who cares :)

Especially for eels, they're endangered don'tcha know? 

 

John.


Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

Now Now gents ;)

This year i have really felt my age only twice fishing in the cold weather and not really enjoying it. The bones and joints freeze up now and i think i have become a Summer angler. I think i am probably fooling myself about the eels as unless its a short session i like my old mans sleep. You will be happy to know dale that i have gone back to the old methods as a bobbin as a bite indicator i am sure you are very pleased for me over this :doh:
