    We would soon get used to it and wonder at the bad old days when we had to remember 16 ounces to a pound, 14 pounds to a stone etc. Just like...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Too hot to go to the river, so a trip to Chesil Beach instead was called for. I arrived at 7.00pm, caught a few mackerel and then just sat on the shingle and watched the sun go down over the water.

    Most waters I fish are within 20 miles, as the cormorant flies, but longer than that when I am driving on the roads.
