Typically, within twenty minutes of starting to fish, James had his usual dunking and then spent the rest of the day with sodden and cold feet. So since James has the inclination to go swimming most times we fish a river (or the sea), I intend to get him a dry suit. One of the reasons for this is it took so long to dry out his waders following his plunge, that we then couldn’t go fishing the next day.
I already took up one of my new resolutions and that was to acquire a wading stick, which I found excellent during our recent trip. It helped me to feel more confident whilst wading and I found that I fished in deeper water than I would have previously. Although as mentioned I didn’t actually catch anything. Hopefully we’ll go again later this week, once I’ve dried out his waders. Now does anyone have any suggestions for dry suits?
All the best for 2020
PS – I’m not in any of the photos as I was the only one with a camera – it’s always worrying to give James anything electronic when fishing ;-)
