A Surprising End To The Year
W
ell, it will be
the start of
February
when you
read this, but
it’s the 2nd of
January as I sit here writing, so I have
to wish you all a Happy New Year. I
hope you had a good Christmas and
Santa gave you all you wanted. The
weather has continued to stay mild,
which is good, as it’s allowing us to
keep wetting the lines.
I only have the one capture to tell
you about from a friend this month, as
I’ve not received any others in from
anyone. This capture is a little bit old;
I didn’t get hold of the pictures until
now but it’s well worthy of putting in
the diary. Steve Summerbell, or
Greggs, as he has become known due

to him how I thought he was mad for
going over there, and how I thought
he was pissing in the wind. It just
goes to show what I know, and he
hasn’t let me forget it since either.
Right, onto my diary, and when I
left you last month I had just caught
the Ghost Common from the Road
Lake. When I got home I had the kids
for the night, and then on the Sunday
morning I drove up to Horton,
dropped my kit off there with a guy
and then went onto the Sandown
show to drop some stove gas off that
I sell and also have a look round and
catch up with some people that I’d
not seen in a while. It was good to see
some old faces. The day flew by, and
before I knew it, it was time to head
back to Horton and get the rods out.
