Lighting up time
They keep getting bigger for Aubrey, almost on a session by session basis! Whilst to some they may appear to be ‘average’ bass, the sheer delight that Aubrey expresses when he catches one reminds me of what its really all about.
The simplicity of the man and the totally enthusiastic and dedicated way he’s gone about his fishing makes every fish special. He’s caught them on the top, on soft plastics on hard plastics – ask him to name any of the technology and he cant, (them jiggers) ask him for the story of the first surface caught fish and that smile will broaden with memories, a moment by moment tale will follow.
The fish have returned somewhat to the Wexford coast but still it proves difficult over time and the hours invested. Its the best fishing I’ve had in over ten weeks with customers and I’m glad to get at least some fish for them at last.
I’m in good company and no doubt I will be reminded of what’s really important before the day is out.
