World Rivers Day


Life is manic at present with our impending house moving getting ever nearer. Stef's been brilliant organising our packing and suggesting well-timed breaks to take Tussock out for walks. Sunday was World Rivers Day so a walk by the Wharfe (maybe my last as a Wharfedale resident?) seemed appropriate

Heaven on Earth


We drove up the dale and then over to Arncliffe in Littondale today. I love Wharfedale but Littondale is at least as beautiful, and generally gets far fewer visitors. We walked around 10 miles including crossing the watershed twice, had lunch at the splendid West Winds tearooms in Buckden and nipped into the Falcon for a pint when we had finished. The heather is in full bloom at the moment. All together a splendid day out

Bream


My first bream on a lure and my first for well over 20 years I think. This fish was a real shock and brings up 19 different species of fish on artificials in 2017 (in fresh and salt water)

Roman Road


It was a beautiful life-affirming morning today. Absolutely perfect for a vizsla walk along the Roman Road
