Fishy Fable

Contributed by Steven Howarth (04.06.2005)

Went to little musgrave on 04.06.05 and wandered down stream towards Ploughlands. Met Mr Garner and he joined me in my downstream pursuit of rising fish. After quite a walk and very little sign of life on the river we headed back upstream, only to find the spot we crossed at was now running chocolate brown and uncrossable ! So we headed back to the cars through a farm yard (Ploughlands) and parted company there.

When I got home I decided to have a quick go near to home and caught 8 fish! (4 around the pound mark, 4 small ones). All fish were caught on a Grey Duster (size 18) near Hartley Sawmill.

There is probably a moral to this story, but I haven't got a clue what it is!
