A view down the Chess

From the bridge at Latimer. The Chess is at its widest around here. A good trout river, I fished the free section at Rickmansworth before it joined the River Colne and from a road bridge at Sarrat as a lad, but had far more success at the trout farm that used to be next to the Chess at Chorleywood. Two large pools were set aside for fishing, I used a spinner, you could take two fish for ten shillings, although no one ever checked. Fresh Brown trout taste really good.

I know of lot of people who would die to fish there, John, especially for trout. Yes, some good eating!

This swan is wondering where all its mates have gone.

Lovely, peaceful landscape John! I like that tree leaning towards the water.
That is a really beautiful spot John.
Lovely composition and blue shades.
