A day on the River Don on a cold day in May

Paul Sissons had generously offered to guide and advise us for a day on the (free water) River Don near Sheffield.
The day proved to be incredibly cold for the time of year, but with Pauls advice and support on river nymphing we were all successful. In fact Ginny was so successful she caught on the first cast! It turned out to be the biggest fish of the day - an escapee rainbow. So congratulations to  her and, clearly, Pauls expert tutoring!
The venue was far more picturesque than I had expected for an urban river. Woodland, with paths (completely free of litter) running through it. Well used, and clearly respected by local walkers and runners.
The warm sun didn't burn through until about 4 in the afternoon - and my feet didn't defrost until much later - but we had good company and good instruction on the water.
Thanks to Paul Sissons and all who attended.
