Earlier in the week I spotted on Twitter that there was to be a Fly Fishing event at Roadford Lake. I forwarded the details to hubby incase he wanted to go.
So at lunchtime we headed off to the event. Roadford Lake is situated on the edge of Dartmoor, not too far from Launceston in Cornwall. Where else can you drive through a hamlet called Broadwoodwidger? Isn’t that a great name?
We had a lovely couple of hours, although I am not
overly in the slightest interested in fishing.
There was a selection of trade stands and a whole assortment of tackle delights – lines, rods, flies and other equipment all to aid the fisherman secure his catch. As I commented to hubby they didn’t have this kit 200 years ago and they still caught fish!
Much to hubby’s delight this appears to be an addition to the fisherman’s calender.
