Festive cheer for the Tornado Twins

Mally has knicknamed me and Paul 'The Gwyniad' Gratton as the 'Tornado Twins' after a blustery days fishing with 'Womble' the other week. But after my intentions to return to that exposed location yesterday and claiming to 'Laugh in the face of Hurricanes' and then ended up on the Dee; Mally duly took the piss!
The decision to switch to the Dee was not just a case of bottling the wind at the other venue, Paul had been on a reconnaissence mission and judged that although the Dee level was high the clarity was good. So it was an early start to beat others to the desired pegs. Followed by a good old natter in the dark and a fry up and a super sausage sandwich. My compliments to the chef!

Paul's research and shout to switch plans paid off. Early on we both banked doubles; Paul had a superb looking 15lb 2oz fish that was as fat as a pig(Photo to follow when i get the picture via e-mail). As soon as that fish was weighed and photographed and tenderly returned my right hand bung obliged and shot off into the middle of the river. A hard fighting typical Dee double of exactly 12lb came to the net. I managed a Jack shortly after of around 5lb and later on added another fish of 12lb 4oz to round off a super bit of festive fishing fun.
