Thursday 7th July:

Just to make me feel really indequate, Andrew has just sent me this photo of a beautiful fish of 14.5 lbs he caught on one of our lower Beats at 2130 last night. He was using his 5wt rod and a size 8 silver sea-trout fly, so it's no wonder it took half an hour to land. Well done!

I have heard on the scuttlebutt that our wives sometimes think fishing is a lazy man's excuse to get away from home and avoid the mundane drudgery of house and garden maintenance or, heaven forfend, having to go shopping. So for all those unbelievers who think we are just enjoying ourselves, I attach this next photo of a group of dedicated anglers surveying the environment and planning work parties to protect our beautiful River Dee.
