The backbone of the blog will be charting the life of a little river that runs from the Cotswolds to the Severn Estuary in South West England, the river just happens to pass near my home in the Severn Vale.  Since moving back out to the country after a couple of decades of being an urbanite, the river has become more and more part of everyday life.

There is no real game plan for the progression of the diary, other than to provide a visual study of the wildlife & environment throughout the seasons & over the passage of time; I’ll aim to do this mainly via photos but there will be a few words as well, I’ll try to keep it short … well perhaps, or if not then I’ll aim to be entertaining at the very least!

I should warn though, that there might well be a few self-indulgent tales of amature but enthusiastic fly fishing antics, both on the local river and further afield … oh, plus perhaps an occasional example of some fly tying and articles on conservation and habitat work. Hope you enjoy visiting.

Tight Lines, Splash

    What a lovely website! Just found it quite by accident and spent most of a morning when I should have been working (harrumph!) scrolling through. Your pictures are lovely. A lot of the locations remind me of my local spots – on the River Frome/Mells just outside Frome – and my 7 year old son likes paddling and collecting bugs to examine, too. A pleasure to visit. Thanks.

    • Glad you liked it, it’s old now this blog but I’ve left it up for people to see – the lad is a bit bigger now, we spend our leisure time cycling at the moment but will pick fishing up again at some point!
