Living the Dovedale

Fished Dovedale last night with Glen. Arrived at the car park at 6.15pm having driven through a lot of water on the was lashing down. We sat in our cars gazing skyward, trying to find a glimmer of hope of the rain just got worse.

"Wen got wet a line anner we" was the prompt for us to tackle up. Tackling up is the worst bit when the weather is like that..once you've got your waders and waterproofs on, the worst of it is over.

We fished up the river taking a few fish on the way up to the Nursery Pool where the Kelly Kettle was lit and the pies consumed.

Top Whisky Tip....when I got home, damp and tired out...a dram was required to warm things up and thought about which Scotch would best suite the occasion of collapsing in front of the fire...easy...there's nothing better when you are cold and wet, Laphroaig 10 year old Cask Strength. So good that Jim Beam Global, it's owners, have recently decided to axe it. Get it while you can, available at all good wine and whisky shops in Russell Street, Leek.
