May Day, May Day, May Day!!!

Well May is finally here and it's not all it's cracked up to be, as far as I'm concerned. My back is still in very rough shape, making it difficult to walk. By now, I was supposed to have been fully recovered but that is obviously not the case. It's all pretty disappointing.

Yesterday I took Peter from Bedford out to the carp flats. We got about 3 inches of rain on Monday and Tuesday and the flats reflooded. We found fish all over the place. I did not bring a rod with me but chose to act as a Ghillie, throwing bread and letting Peter know when to set the hook after a fish ate his fly. He was able to land his first carp on a fly with me.
