Wind forecasts of thirty knots kept me off the sea this afternoon and I decided to have a look at some small lakes closer to ‘home’. Well sheltered, they are a safe bet in windy weather.

Saturday was a beautiful day but to avoid a Valentine’s Day massacre I stalled the fishing plans for the weekend until Sunday. Saturday would have been a lot drier.
