Today the small stretch of river I can see from my window was crowded with fishermen. It is the first day of the new fishing season.
Speaking to my neighbours they said that every year on the first day the fishermen arrive with their new equipment sparkling in the sun and the river is crowded. Then are never seen again, until the first day next year.
A short while ago I bought a fishing rod late one evening off a man in a car park. I am not sure if I shall ever use it.
As I live in a rural area with a trout stream running past my door I thought I might try fishing, it seemed to make sense. However I am not sure if I could actually touch a fish, let alone kill it.
We shall see…
