Fished the R.Thames back on Saturday with the LAS.
Apart from being attacked constantly by horse flies during the morning, and then discovering at lunch my pasty I had left underneath the car to keep cool had been eaten. I pretty much had a enjoyable day, the weather was an improvement from out last visit, and I believe everyone caught.
When we started and everyone's attention was focused on the water, something in a field behind us caught my attention and it turned out to be a barn owl hunting for breakfast (mouse), it was one of them moments where I just wish I'd have taken the bridge camera rather than my compact. The fishing for me was slow, I only managed the one fish by around 10:25am which in turn becomes a welcome PB. The fish nailed the copper blade bait that I was working in the margins on my left, it gave a good scrap too.
After watching the barn owl I was inspired to have a play with the bridge yesterday, although I never strayed further than my back yard I did get a very nice macro picture of a common garden spider, after a little play with picasa was very pleased with the end result, I just hope that none of you readers are arachnophobic.
