end of that little rant,
As for the fishing side of things, it's good and bad,
went down the canal, last week and ended up breaking my new rod whilst reeling in half a hand of weed, it was ruled down to something tin the manufacturing, as it was a clean snap but now it's in the shops hands where i got it from they should be sending a spare part soon.
on a brighter note, I've regained contact with an old water i used to fish, which has some cracking perch,
so some of the new lures should be fun to use,
really really looking forward to it,
till next time Alex
