Hell, you're a year older than me.

I was in the same situation. hadn't fished for years. Love it to bits now. There's no water in the river here right now but I still go at the gloaming for wee trout with a dry fly.

Good luck friend and may your rod be bent - you may not want that though. Very Happy

welcome and good luck Brian, once things like fishing r in the blood it's hard to get rid of. Very Happy it's that pull
at the end of your rod that gets the addrenaline going every time??? Embarassed

If the age group keeps going up we'll need an OAP section so the young ones ar not over infected by nastalga!!!!! Twisted Evil
