Misty summer mornings on a deserted lake, watching the tench bubbles rise to the surface as you cast in a packed swimfeeder and juicy lobworm.

That is heaven.

Cold frosty mornings and the dodgy doner kebab from the takeaway on the way home after a night on the piss!

Going home on the 22nd so I will be able to sample all these things Does anyone want anything bringing back out

Having a nice shag in a field of daffodils on a crisp May morning whilst listening to the peel of church bells in the distance...and the long summer days.

Miss the banter of walking into a Glasgow city centre pub and just listening to the old drinkers at the bar talk shite about religion, politics and football

entertainment of the highest order..
