A blog about multi-species lure fishing and life in the U.K and abroad and a little bit more. Always believe in lures! (TheFishingboy@gmail.com)

Wet... wet... wet...

After years of fishing, this is actually a first for me. Instead of dropping a Texas-rig craw into a perch hotspot in the river, I dropped myself instead...

It's a wet affair...

So, that has got to be the blunder of the week for sure. How my SLR camera managed to stay dry was probably the highlight of this slight misfortune. Well, at least the river wasn't deep or dangerous. As for the perch hotspot, that got 'ruined' big time by my presence in the water. So, there goes the spot. Plus, the fishing on the day wasn't amazing either. I caught none but Sharky managed to find himself a chub on one of the shallow runs.

A chub from the shallows on a finesse crankbait.

As for me, the 'fun' didn't just end there... I got home to find a deep cut on my left palm and that was the mystery of the day. Perhaps, that could have been caused by some of the thorny vegetation while I was climbing out of the river. For the record, the wound is about a week old now and it hasn't quite healed completely.

The mystery cut...

As for the pair of boots which took the fall into the river, they are not even completely dry, even after 7 days.

I wonder when these would dry out completely...

Thanks for reading.
