Carl Hier has a moment of waterside contemplation

There surely are not many better ways to recharge & revive than sitting by a rivers side

In a busy turbulent world of conflict and doubt
It’s not about science or innovations 
There’s a need for space, for time and calm
To breath, without booking reservations 


Practitioners of angling slow down and observe
It’s about pausing and quiet contemplation
At the edge of water with Mother Nature
Putting away all tension and frustration


Taking in our surroundings whilst in pursuit of fish
No better way to recharge and revive
Put things in perspective, take stock, stand still
On waterside days we learn, grow and thrive
