Sorry about the everything going wonky!

If you have been using IE you may have noticed that the sidebar went a bit wonkey around a week ago. The sidebar ended up away down on the page. This is because of a wonky bit of code somewhere that jiggered everything up. As I use firefox I did not notice, it was just [...]

The world NEEDS a bad day fishing!

A nice post over at Muskoka Outdoors Blog

Riverkeeper.co.uk

If there is something I like, other than a bargain, it is good service. I have written about Riverkeeper before but thought I would again just in case you missed it. It is now nearly the start of the season and I am doing my usual getting my tackle sorted out, what I need new [...]
