Well, Its only one week left until the end of the season…the trout season that is. Im trying to decide whether I should move my efforts to sea trout and salmon..only the next month will say i suppose.
Ive got some ideas for the web site, i was thinking of changing the colour scheme and [...]
Great, managed to give that Gibson Street stretch a go today. It was pouring down with rain and i didnt manage to get some pictures …..well any good pictures anyway.
I started a good bit behind this ….

How many fish have i caught this season?I was asked this today by another angler that stopped to chat. To be honest i was totally stumped. He pretty much knew that he had caught around 60. Looking back through this blog is a bad idea as i started making the site and doing the blog [...]
