Join me in a quest to find trout in the rivers and lakes of Northern England
Monday, 1 February 2010
Here's some snaps from a weekend mission up to Grasmere. The lake was frozen over round the margins so we had all sorts of fun smashing through the ice to get afloat on the water. Despite freezing conditions and a conspicuous lack of pike, we had a brilliant day exploring the lake, and drinking steaming hot coffee from one of Nick's many flasks. Surveying a tarn we passed on the way back I was left dreaming of spring and the sight of rising fish in the margins....not long to go now.
