Dined well and drank accordingly last night at a little hotel in Berkshire.   Two bottles of a very pleasing Melbec and a half bottle of a very fine Tokay with fresh strawberries to finish.  The main was pork belly and asparagus, and it weren't half bad !  Mein host produced a very acceptable Armagnac in his private drawing room, and the cigars were on me ( Romeo y Julieta robustos given me by Raul Castro when I last graced Havana with my presence ).

This morning up at Sparrows fart and down on the Kennet at Kintbury for vacuum flask coffee and 
" Pusser's " rum.........and more cigars, plain old Montecristos , but gratis, so what do I care ?

Took one Rainbow and three Brownies before lunch ; all on a very yellow Tups Indispensable in murky, but fast water up to three feet.   LUNCH . Plenty of fresh French bread, local butter and buckets of game 
Pate.   Local fruit and more, much more , Melbec.   Post lunch ( i.e. Three o/clock onwards ), a goodish
Mayfly hatch ( halfway thru' June ! ) and the fish came thick and fast, all Brownies, nothing less than two pounds and the best a tad over three .   Missed quite a few strikes - too much Melbec !      

Trout for supper !
