Hello to everyone,

 

I think it is about 4.5 years since my last post.

 

I have had trouble in ensuring my retirement happens in an orderly way and now I retire on the 23rd of April and things for the first time look good.

 

My fishing stopped about the same time as my last post and my interest has been keeping my kit in good order,but,as from June this year(river fishing):) I will be back.

 

Over the last few years I have visited the site a few times and things have changed,but,it in my opinion still the best. I am glad to be back and will be logging on each day to try and contribute.

 

Richard.

I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.

What do you think if the float does not dip, try again I think.

Welcome back Richard.

Glad that things seem to be working for you and you will soon be back fishing
