Today was a nice sunny day, only 14°C but it feels like 20-something. I could take it no longer: I had to get out. I haven’t fished since early December 2020 due to my back issues, so it was refreshing to get the spinning rod out and hit Lake Wendouree.
I had a big day yesterday, and I was alone, so I took it nice and easy. I made sure not to bend/twist/lift anything, only went with a rod and some lures in my pocket, and though I had a landing net dangling from my belt, if I had hooked up I was pretty certain I’d have to deliberately drop the fish, rather than bend down to land it.
But all that is secondary and unimportant. The important thing is I got out there, and I feel great already.
