What better was to end our day’s cycling than with a bit of fishing? The bait we were using, was in fact our feet. The cooling water of the Youghiogheny River was the perfect tonic to help us unwind and chill. The water wasn’t warm – but neither was it freezing, so sitting in the warmth of the evening, (the temperature is still easily in the 70s) it was wonderful.
Plenty of youngsters were paddling well up to their chests, (I suspect they have better circulation than us), we were happy just to watch.
Did any fishes nibble your toes ?
Nope, although one of mine was bleeding slightly so I did wonder if that might attract a leach or two!
