Max has got the bug bad. All he has spoken this week is going fishing, different species, places to go. He has always had a passion for animals but that has now transpired to all things fish as well.
This week I planned an action packed morning to add further fuel to the fire in his belly and to give him more experience of casting, playing and also unhooking some fish for himself. As sad as it is a commercial would be the best place but not somewhere catching pasties and mud pigs. A silver pool like the one at Willow Farm was ideal, plenty of bites and a lovely variety of silver fish.
First cast a decent Roach and he insisted the camera came out to record the historic moment. Several more followed along with some decent sized Silver Bream and a few dainty Perch.
When he started to get the hang of things it gave me an opportunity to get the camera out and take some action shots.
A quick learner it was a joy to hear his squeals of delight when he got a fish on.
Biggest fish of the day was this 2lb 2oz Common Bream.
Pleased as punch with a quality netful of Silvers. Back on the river next time....
