Fishing fools

Last week saw the county host a youth fishing event at the local percolation ponds. It was a overcast day (see below) with intermittent showers, but the event was very well attended.

We all went along, and my heart sank when I saw the huge strings of fish that other youthful fishermen were walking along with, but luckily our boys still managed to catch nothing in these heavily stocked ponds!*

* to be fair to the boys we didnt really have the right tackle for catching trout in a pond - but we had fun neverthe less. We saw lots of birds landing and taking off from the ponds which is always fun, saw a large carp taunting us from the shallows, and a couple of turtles.
