Yesterday was one of the 'special' days, I took my 8 year old (soon to be 9 he insists) out in a boat for the first time. Once again, Elinor did us proud, alive with fish chasing seemingly endless damsel nymphs. Their preoccupation meant that despite them rising next to the boat, behind the boat, to either side . . . wherever you looked in fact . . . hooking them was a bit of a challenge. When we left at around 3.30pm (an 8 year old's attention span had been sorely tested!) our bag of 5 fish was the best recorded thus far. However, the highlight was Josh' successfully playing and landing his first fly caught trout. The smile says it all!
