Blagdon in the wind and rain

Bank holiday Monday was going to be a wash out according to the forecast. After a cracking lunch, the idea of venturing out on Blagdon was questionnable, but it was well worth it. I was to be in fine company too as I was meeting with Alex and Charles Jardine. Also we had the pleasure of fishing with Malcolm Fisher whose knowledge of Blagdon is second to none.

The forecast was right, but buffered by the Mendip Hills, we were able to fish quiet comfortably through the wind and the rain. There was sport for all of us, and some very fine rainbow trout showed too. At times a little but picky, they were stunning sport on a 4 weight outfit...

A stunning (sometimes moody) landscape; stunning whatever the weather
