The missus had to go out for a 4 pm appointment so I decided to nip down the river to try and get my big perch. Left at 15:55, fishing at 16:10. Second cast I had a jack of about a pound and the heavens opened. I don't mind getting wet but the lightning started and I did not fancy carrying 12' of carbon in an electrical storm. I was home by 16:25. By 16:30 it was glorious again. The gods are conspiring to stop me getting my big perch I'm sure of it.:mad:

No mate, the bridge is one of those flat things with only about a foot of clearance, problem is I'm a fat B*****d.
Youre not on your own there. I once stood in a telephone box while the heavy shower passed over but, when I got back to my gear Id forgot to cover my maggots. Hence, fished with floating maggots all day long. Doh ! 😣
