The tree roots look to me, like hands and arms clinging to the hard granite rocks.

Hi Bob, great find, it certainly looks like it's clinging on for it's life. I've fished everywhere from Melbourne to Market Bosworth, all west of the M1. I've never really visited anywhere east of the M1 in the area between Loughborough and Leicester. L

Hello Mark We tend to stick to the areas we know. When I fished in the 1960s/70s we had just a motor bike and side car but we always went fishing on a Sunday come rain or shine.Thanks for the Like. Regards Bob

Creature of habit, I know I'll be fishing in the same places again this year:) I've taken a boat down the Soar and over waterways that side but, that's it. Glad you're filling in the gaps for me. Do you do any fishing now?

Hi Mark I loved fishing and would love to get back into the swim one day soon, I need to get all new tackle, you cannot beat canal fishing for a tranquil pastime. Regards Bob

Hi Bob, amazing how they just cling to and grow around almost anything. Great find. Like.

Regards, Rosa.

Hello Rosa The Oak and the Willow are both great survivors. There quite a few of the old Oaks at the Bradgate park that are in great danger of falling over because of the eccelerated soil erosion.Thanks for the Like. Regards Bob
