An Ironic Stroke of Luck

A few months ago my good friend Paul got in touch after reading an article in Trout and Salmon about fishing on the River Derwent, County Durham. He liked the sound of it and proposed we had a trip north to fish this little known river later in the year. Not being one to turn down an overnight fishing trip, especially one involving 2 days fishing, good food, plenty of real ale, quality wine and catching up with a good friend, I quickly accepted. The trip was entered in the diary and the day finally came around last week.
