gotta get out...

It's been two weeks since I was last out and I'm getting twitchy. Today the wind's howling and the river's carrying a touch of extra water after last weeks rain, but it's fishable, so I think I'll be having a few hours later.
The conditions on my last outing weren't much better, other than the river was very low. I was well wrapped up that day, it was bitterly cold - the windchill off a freezing easterly dropped the temperature close to zero - but I managed a few hours.
The fish didn't seem to like the conditions either, they were hugging the river bed and the going was slow. But the old faithful, my Orange bug, saved the day - four times - before I succumbed to the cold and headed home.

The old faithful...
