for the love of water

and everything that lives in it.image

this creature lies in one of my favourite playgrounds, the Aude river near home. the fish that live in it are rather pretty as well.

today’s stream

is a lovely little piece of water in the Pyrénées foothills that flows right behind the fishery. it’s not the fishiest place but has provided some nice surprises in the past.
today’s surprise was a rather brutal thunderstorm that came in less than five minutes. just enough time get head-to-toes wet and  ditch the rod in the bushes until i could fetch it on the way back with the van. it was a nice afternoon.
