Thread: Cracking rainbow!

  1. #1

    Cracking rainbow!

    I know it's not a shooting related photo but something that I am quite proud of. I decided to go to Pennine Trout Fishery today to have a bit of quiet time to relax and get some light exercise and fresh air.
    I don't want to bore you with the full story but I came away a very happy chappy after catching and landing a fantastic Rainbow of Fourteen and a Quarter Pounds which fought me tooth and nail for over twenty minutes before I could land it.
    It's now been converted into fillets which are ready to be distributed tomorrow amongst the pensioners in the flats where I live!
    Here's the fish, hopefully the smile on my ugly mush will say it all!

    Well done Frenchie!
    The older life throws you two chances ..
    A. Get out there and have a go ..or
    B. Spend the rest of your life wishing you had.
    Enjoy!

    You are so right there! The only thing that I have to do as the years start to catch up with you is to make sure that you pace myself carefully and know your limits - Rather like making love, it's fine keeping up with the church bell on a Sunday morning but it's right hell on my old ticker when the alarm clock goes off unexpectedly!

    The fish weren't playing ball much so I ended up putting on an old faithful Squirmy Wormy under a sight indicator.
