I was last at work physically on March 23, which means that in terms of touching individual months, now that we’re into July, that’s a total of five.
I know a lot of people in general hated being on furlough, but I am still loving it, all these weeks later.
The fact that I’m fishing, sometimes twice a day, is enough in itself.
Out on an overnighter tackling a big gravel pit, I got home and showered, and within a couple of hours I was off again, this time on a tiny pond after three-spined sticklebacks.
There are many things in life that you can never get enough of and angling most definitely is up there, as far as I’m concerned.
I’m most certainly enjoying the relaxed lifestyle that furlough has brought. Never underestimate quality of life.
I know it won’t last forever, but like all good things, I’m enjoying it, and have made the most of it.
Again, I caught lots of sticklebacks and I’m not lying if I say that I had action every single cast.
I’m quite enjoying targeting them at the moment and I’ve got another venue lined up as well, which will be featured shortly.
The tackle I fished with was as follows: Poachers Pocket mini-rod and reel. Reel line was 4lb Maxima Chameleon, leading to Ultima Virage 1lb 6oz fluorocarbon, joined by a loop-to-loop knot.
The float was hand-made and the hook was a Drennan Super Specialist micro barbed size 18. Bait was a single red maggot.
