At the start of February I popped home for my girlfriend's birthday, and having squirmed my way back into the good books I managed to cadge a lift down to the River Wharfe for a morning chasing ladies, also providing me with a chance to test out my new Contour Roam 2 headcam. There had been a substantial amount of rain, so I opted for the age old Yorkshire tactic of trotted worm. The weather was dire and I'd been expecting to take a bit of a whipping, but to my surprise and delight I had a day of days with 11 gorgeous Grayling up to around a pound and a half. Not bad for a flying two or three hour session! Below are some photos from the day, plus some video footage I shot with the new headcam, hope you enjoy it!
|New gadget: the Contour headcam. Takes a wee while to stop feeling self conscious about having it strapped to the side of your head!|
|On target with one of the first ladies of the session...|

|Posing for the camera...|
|Not all of them were so cooperative!|
|A decent fish to finish.|
