Me, Rod and Mr. Fish

Heard of ‘The Who’, and how about Roger Daltrey?  Well, he lives in East Sussex and has this beautiful estate for fly fishing.  And that’s just what he let everyone use it for – all in the name of raising money for one of my favourite charities.  One Friday in late May (when we had our summer) 50 odd people turned up for The Children’s Trust fly fishing fundraiser.



I had a good go at the fishing, and didn’t take it too seriously until I actually caught one, and reeled it in – If that’s what the fishy folk call it.  Here I am with Mr. Fish. (sorry Mike, not you!)

It’s a rainblow trout by the way, and rapidly loses it’s colour once it’s been out of the water for a while, so as you can tell this one was super duper fresh.  This fishy fun in the sizzling sun was shortly followed by lunch by the lake, where I met Rod Stewart…



The Children’s Trust had 2 competitions running; one for the heaviest fish, and the other for the group that caught the most fish.  As Michael Fish wasn’t there for the first category (he’s going to kill me…), the group below won the second catergory with 5 huge beasties.  No jokes about us humans now…



A brilliant day out, and a reminder of what sunshine looks like!

Thanks to the lovely Keith Walter for the great pics – with a few from my loyal Blackberry too!
