Watching the Olympics reminded me of the blog that never got typed up. Three years since I tackled the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas in Rio de Janeiro. I walked the length of Copacabana beach down to Ipanema to be beaten by both the fish and the weather unfortunately. All but devoid of decent fish now due to well publicised pollution incidents, but I still had to have a try. Managed s few tiny fish before a huge tropical thunderstorm cut short the fishing trip. Oh well, it was a good excuse to retire to the local bar before heading back to town on the bus.
