16th June. Coarse fishing on our rivers begins again. Sharing my swim today was a kingfisher. He was no more than an arm stretch away. Together we watched the mists rise and the trees turn to gold. We fished side by side. Brothers of the Angle. He, a sleek flash of electric blue; me, an old cane rod and a gaudy orange topped float. At one point I was outfishing my noble opponent by three fish to one. With a loud “Beep” he left his perch. A neon arrow shot downstream and out of sight. Back to his nest; as did I, for breakfast. #coarsefishing #traditionalangling #vintagefishing #wildlife #riverculm @westcountryangling
