I spent the afternoon flinging lures and wobbling roach around Salford Quays and the lower reaches of the River Irwell without success.
Some lovely winter sunshine made it a pleasure to be out and about.
Imagine my pleasure this evening to find out that one of my fishing pals has had a successful day
My friend Chris took his son fishing on the Mersey for a few hours - (oh dear Chris it looks like the fishing gene has skipped a generation in your family) - and his young man managed to catch himself the trout of a lifetime. Well done, congratulations and dont ever let your dad forget it :)
