Went to one of my club waters yesterday as the sun was shining and I had a few hours to myself for a change. Unfortunately mother nature had other plans and put a lid of ice on the lake to scupper my chances. Oh well, it is a lovely venue and I really enjoyed the peace and tranquillity. I stayed for an hour or so just walking around, picking up litter and chatting to a friendly robin. A couple of other hopeful anglers arrived and we took in the view together and vowed to return on a warmer day.
