This is a depressing time of year for a sea trout angler… the end of the season is approaching fast and conditions are anything but favourable. When Al Dubin wrote the lyrics to September in the Rain, he must have been inspired by a visit to Ireland…
‘The leaves of brown came tumbling down… Remember… Last September… In the rain’
When September arrives you can expect the Autumn Equinox (Sept 22) to bring a few wet and windy days with a drop in temperature. This year is no exception and set to continue for the next week or so.
The Pete Seeger song ‘Where have all the flowers gone’ is another song which springs to mind but he wasn’t thinking about the weather when writing his lyrics. Instead, this Peace/Protest song carried a message for the political establishment… ‘When will we ever learn’.
Now if you are wondering what has all this got to do with fishing the answer is, nothing whatsoever! It just happens that I have had to cancel all my fishing… I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself with nothing better to do so I thought I would tell you about September in the Rain.
