What a proper dismal day outside here on the not so sunny shores of the Narrow sea

Suns come up behind thick cloud, hardly illuminated the day at all, grey skies, clouds laden with rain and releasing it slowly in that goddam awful precipitation that soaks you right through

what a difference from the early autumn day we had yesterday, cant see himself and I heading out far again today unless theres a radical change soon

just dried him up with a old towel and hes running around with an afro styled set of dog feathers

Im glad I got summat to set to indoors today

Typical isn't it, a day off today and it's what we call round here...a tad damp (pee-ing it down). Nothing to do, nowhere to go, sheesh, I'm already bored.

I was planning on a trip out meeting up with Peter for a bit of maggotdrowning today, but looking at the forecast yesterday we decided to give it a swerve.

Last night I'm thinking, maggots in the fridge, tackle cleaned, sorted and ready, forecast didn't look too bad for later, venue sorted, let's see what happens in the morning.

This morning everything is soaked outdoors, the garden has ground water in the lower parts, water level in my pond is up to the overflow, grey, dismall and the threat of more rain to come - do I really want/need to go out or shall I spend the day in the house with the missus and dawg, venture out onto the field with him later, keep dry warm and the tackle clean.

Was heading out for few hours, club pond, river still up, but it's blowing hard and there is more than a chance of some more wet stuff and with wind it would be very unpleasant. So in it is.

Give your gun a good cleaning.

Did both guns yesterday hoping to get out today...no chance of that happening. Was going to go down to the gun range this afternoon, no chance of that either as you have to book online first, should have done that yesterday.

Got one job to do I've put off since the start of the week, only a closing inspection but on a 7 bed detached house with a name rather than number somewhere in Barnt Green, a bit of a 'footballers village'. Will take me a good hour, that's how lazy I am feeling. Bit of side effect of flu jab maybe. Forecast has changed from nice to gloomy for the weekend too.

Beautiful day yesterday. Went to a little lake that's part of a country park and thrashed the water to a foam for two Perch and five Roach. Combined weight of probably a pound.
Overnight howling wind and rain. Now unremitting greyness and rain. Little club match on Sunday. Hmmm..,

Blowing 40mph plus here this morning but less rain showing now than originally forecast so might have a just about fishable river tomorrow whereas as I thought it was a Stillwater job for sure. Even if it is fishable it’ll be hard in such conditions so will have the insurance of a Stillwater session on Saturday as well to hopefully guarantee a bit of a better result.
