Hi Brian,There is not a sane human, on this planet, who can offer a reasoned defence for what is happening in the world at present. Angling is a superb escape from reality, for those of us lucky enough not to be embroiled in that outrageous situation in Ukraine. Some lovely fish, well done, yet so insignificant within the bigger picture? What is so sad is the fact that there is nothing you, I, or any other ordinary person, can do to make a difference. Tight lines - Dylan
Cheers Dylan. It was a weirdly difficult post to write. When I go fishing, especially on my own, I get completely absorbed in what I’m doing - for example I followed the top barbel for well over half an hour before I convinced her to take a bait, not once did I think about anything except that fish. But when I packed up and walked away from the river I realised just how insignificant it all was.
I totally agree Brian. I find solace in my fishing, away from all the madness
We’re lucky we can escape to the riverbank!
There aren't many better than the riverbank for a slice of solitude, what a strange and unstable world we live in, I echo your sentiment, lets hope peace is restored as soon as possible.
The perfect place to escape what’s wrong with the world! Can only hope the world, and certain idiots in it, come to their senses very soon!
