Do you fish, Mick? Probably not got time with all your travels!
I only fished for cockies using a stick with a worm on a bent pin on the end of a piece of string.

Ernest .....I used to fish at the local pond with a stick, some string and a bent pin....talk about going back in time.....didn't like worms, so I used bread.....worked just as well...cheers!!!

I don't know this place but it's a great candid shot of a peaceful moment

Was this Mellings Flash, reputedly the home of a giant pike?


Comment by incer71 on 7th September 2013 at 18:22
