‘Thou shall hev a fishy!!’

Oh the joy and the sheer delight on my children’s faces when today we went fishing, not only for the first time in their lives but also for the first time in my life!!!  ‘Slow parenting’ – the epitome!!! From skipping along the path, bucket and net in hand to wading into the stream and waiting patiently for a little minnow to swim past, to the ecstatic cheers when a fish was caught. It was a sheer delight. What a simple and wonderful activity to do and why on earth had I not thought of doing it before? The location was Byron’s Pool and the spot, a little man-made shingle beach close to a bridge leading down to the pool where Byron used to bathe. Idyllic and delightful. I will remember our fishing trip very fondly for years to come…………………
