A favourite float

IMG_2116It’s just a quill with a painted red tip and a coat of varnish. Isn’t it?

Of course not. A favourite float has more memories and adventures attached to it than any diary. This one was lost twice in the final week of the season, the second time to a far bank tree in the pitch dark. It took some extraordinary heroics for it to remain in the author’s fishing bag to this day.
