    Will you be at work wondering what might have been ? Or will you be out there getting some in ?

    I've got the 16/17/18th off work{coincidentally my sweeper is off the road for a major service...}so I shall be at the waterside hoping for those magical mystical early mornings when the tench are creating all those lovely fizzy bubbles in my swim, and the carp are pigging out on my groundbait and those big rudd are just waiting for my casters to hit the water, and.....










    But being the gentleman that I am I'll take the time to spare a thought for those of you shut in your offices answering the phone and slaving over a hot keyboard, or sitting in your company car in a traffic jam....oh yes, I'll spare a thought for you.

    But as my float slides away I'll forget all about you....... :-)

    Me too Richard, I never work on the first or last day of the season, I try and avoid it on all the other days as well but someone has to pay the bills.

    Good men...good.
    Men after my own heart. Work is the curse of the fishing classes, my old mate used to say.

    16th and 17th off for me too. I shall be on a little Fenland drain watching the dawn break and hopefully seeing the float sink. Prebaiting for a week in advance as usual and let's hope we don't get an overnight frost this year!

    I'll be there too, pitching me tent the day before, with me bag of ground bait feeding me swim and on the stroke of midnight, casting out into that magical halo on the water and watching for my float to disappear,and the first fish hits the net as the sun rises how glorious.

    Richard,

    I'll be waking at dawns crack to take a leisurely sprint down to the lower wye, to watch the sun rise over the valley, and from thence onwards will spend the rest of the day in glorious tranquility, only to be bothered by the sound of racous laughter coming from a small armada of dayglow canoeists thrashing the water to a foam.

    Oh, and no doubt I'll lose fifty quids worth of feeders in the rocks.

    And get sunburnt

    and bitten by a fleet of mossies















    But i don't care, cos I'll be barbelling again. WOHOOOOOOOOOOO

    I'll be baiting up on the 15th, then early to bed and one the bank at 3-30am on the 16th.

    I love it.

    I am proud indeed to be called a traditionalist old fart.
