OK. The test of the fly and fly reel on a mini-rod wasn't very successful. It was pretty easy to cast in tight places but couldn't get any action on the fly.
The fish gave it a couple of looks and then gave me the fish finger - I don't mean Mrs Paul's.

Still the turtles didn't seem to mind. It was a beautiful day and they were out sunning themselves. For some reason, knowing that turtles live in my neighborhood makes me smile. I may have to speak to someone about that.
