An exciting parcel came in the post today

An exciting parcel came in the post today – a brand spanking new #4 weight fly rod from one of my many admirers. Actually it was a competition prize, but it’s more or less the same thing – somebody loved me enough to send me a new rod.
All I need now is to get out the vice and top up my fly box, and then get a new pair of waders, as the mice chewed holes in my old pair when they were hung up in the garage 🙁
New rod, new flies, new waders, and big old fat trout hopefully 😀
P.S. And maybe a few pike and perch on a heavier rod too – and no, it was the waders hung in the garage, not the mice… 🙂
