Summer Evenings

Summer evenings light until after ten what joy to able to get out for a few hours fishing after work. Lure fishing for bass, LRF fishing for a variety of species, casting a fly across the river for salmon or sea trout. The past few weeks have seen plenty of these short evening sorties the following images give a taste of these evenings of summer.
