Still to wet a line

I toyed with the idea of wetting a line today and heading to my local river which is the Carron near Falkirk. When I say toyed, it didn't take much to put me off and the chill in the morning air was enough.

There's a saying which I actually thought was Scot's in origin which goes " Ne'er cast a clout till May is out " ( actually turns out it's English probably pre 17th century ). I also thought it was fishing related meaning don't cast a line till May. Well it turns out I was wrong on both accounts as it means don't get rid of the winter woolens till May arrives.

Anyway, you get the picture, I reckonned it was a bit too cold for the troots today so I gave it a miss and worked on the Bunny Lodge instead. I'll explain with pictures in a future blog.

So, no troot reports, no troots and that's about all there is to say. Hopefully I'll have a report by the end of the week.
