Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 14th January, 2014)
Thanks for this pic, Scotsmans has a distinct recognition from all points. Lovely.
Has this photo been taken a little while ago, there's still leaves on the trees.
I beleive it is Ernest's birthday today. If so, happy day from one Springfield boy to another!
Does anyone actually fish there anymore? and what about the other nearby ponds I knew as a kid -Waddicars, Three Corners, Blackwater, Coolies etc etc or have the convenient, man made, well stocked carp ponds taken over fishing?
Dont see mnay fishing the canal anymore either
Norman Skellon: Thank you - it`s my 86th!
Commenter`s; Let`s not start another argument as to whether it`s Scotmans or Scotsmans flash.
Scholes Malc You still see plenty of men fishing in the canal, theres a lot of them just walking along the canal bank with short rods and a few cans of strong ale trying to catch pike.
Happy Birthday Ernest
Happy Birthday Ernest....have a great day....cheers!!!.....nice pic by the way... :)
Lovely photo, Michael...peaceful and tranquil.
I used to love fishing in the Blackwaters as a kid. The water was always so clear and there were lots of fish in it.
Happy Birthday Ernest. Well done lad.
Many happy returns Ernest!
Firstly this shot was taken mid july around 9.30pm
Secondly as Mick said there are still a few fishing and there was one on the flash on friday afternoon
Thirdly happy 86th birthday Earnest
You cause the arguments Ernest.
Garry you are right with regsrd to Harry Cunliffe`s 31st Dec.2012 P-a-D.
See Harry`s last comment on 15th Dec.2013 on photo #24224 which is next to last in Album, Places, Scotsmans Flash.
Are there not still fishing matches on the cut yet Malc? i dont get there much myself these days. Happy birthday Ernest, have a good 'un and many more. Nice pic Michael, what time was it taken?
Sorry Michael, just seen the time, 9-30 pm.
Roy there plenty of fishing matches, sometimes about 30 to 50 men which can make it a stop start if your on a bike like me because of them pulling in there long rods and blocking the path while changing there bait
Happy Birthday Ernest.
Happy birthday Ernest and many more of them!
Thanks to all who posted greetings on my birthday.
