Just after Christmas I decided that at the age of 74 I would take up fly fishing again, after a break of some 50+ years. As I only had minimal remaining tackle I had to buy more and I devoted a lot of time to this.

|A decent Rainbow Trout which was returned|
Perhaps I will just concentrate my efforts on trout fisheries which are less demanding.

Anyway, it hasn't been all fishing. During April my wife and I returned to my beloved Norfolk Broads with my oldest friend and his daughter, having rented a cottage in Horning, together with a very lovely little cruiser that enabled us to have the best of a cruising holiday with the added benefit of comfortable bedrooms and a bit of luxury to return to in the evening.

On our return it will only be a short time before we are off to Northumbria.
