It was a misty start to the first day of the fishing season! I was up at the crack of dawn and Graeme and I set off for the lake complete with fishing tackle and food! Food is very important when one is fly fishing! It wasn't warm and the lake (Stithians reservoir) is as full as I've ever seen it. Graeme caught a small trout almost immediately but I spent more time entangling my fly with the bushes behind me than actually getting it far enough out to catch a fish! Actually I did manage one or several very good casts, even though I say it myself! However not good enough to catch anything. I obviously wasn't using a fly that the fish could feel worthy of eating! After a few hours I left Graeme there as I had to work in the afternoon. However after all the time he has put in dyeing fabric he deserves a break! And hopefully he will catch a few more fish to put in the freezer!

I have found fish to be a great source of inspiration for design work and have used fishy themes frequently. Here are a few examples.

Well I would have added more but Blogger would n't let me! Wah!!!

Third time of trying lucky! I had to publish and then have another go! And then I was only allowed to put up one more! I obviously don't understand the system!
