Hook, line & Skimmer!
Sorry for the delay in uploading anything lately, but new job needed breaking in, so apologies to all who’ve been waiting!
A small Bream – also known as a ‘Skimmer’ to most UK fishermen – battles in vain against the elasticated workings of a pole, a size 22 spade end and the ‘pound bottom’ that helped to present a single caster as natural fish-food…
For everybody else who has no idea of fishing, the above jargon just means that the fisherman in question knows how to trick his quarry into snaffling his bait!
