The posts have been few and far between recently – reflecting my lack of fishing. It has been a busy spring and early summer and fishing has been decidedly absent from the agenda.

But Matt and I did manage to get out for a couple hours the other night. It was urban fishing in search of smallmouth bass. And it was wet wading, a major attraction given the heat wave we have been experiencing. With 34C air temperatures, the water was starting to feel like a bath tub.

We weren’t the only ones enjoying the water. There was lots of swimming and general splashing about.

I am sure it had some impact on the fish but they didn’t seem too put off as we managed to hook into a few in the short time we were there. Nothing huge but still entertaining. It was good to get out again, catch a few fish and cool off.
