The Long Trot

Dear John,

I fished early saturday morning with my brother and we had a cracking couple of hours sport. The river looked superb, fast flowing with plenty of water but clear. The fish were all taken on a white maggot , ( one , two or three per hook , it didn’t seem to matter ) on a size twelve hook. Being barbless wasn’t any sort of handicap. We also saw a small salmon in spawning colours jump at the tail of the pool immeadiately below ten hatches , all was right with the world !
