Dragonflies, bird song, serenity, survey the river, observe for fish rising, fly rod, landing net, fix reel to rod, thread the line, attach a leader, attach tippet, tie on lead shot to sink the flies, attach 3 flies, one scarlet and green, one blue and brown, one yellow and orange, all with a sharp curled barb at the end. Sit in meadow a riot of cow parsley, ragwort, buttercups, white clover and oxeye daisy. Overhanging trees, insects falling in, good spot to fish, brown trout and salmon swim in easy casting range.
