Maybe this was what he needed, a weekend away fishing.
He quite fancied the solitude of the task, patiently waiting for the fish to bite.
Yeah. He could do this.
Loading up the car with camping equipment, waders, tackle and bait, he kissed his wife goodbye and set off early Saturday morning.
He found the place OK and pitching his tent, looked forward to a relaxing couple of days by the river.
His wife greeted him at the door Sunday afternoon and asked him how it went.
Holding up his catch, she gushed praise and set to preparing a meal.
Her laughter spilled from the kitchen and she appeared at the door.
‘You didn’t catch any of these did you?’ she grinned holding up a supermarket stub.
‘Not exactly, but I could have. I had a few in my keep net last night, but they had escaped by morning.’
She crooked an eyebrow.
She crossed her arms.
‘OK. None. But at least it was quiet until the BBQ started.’
