Marriage Counseling

A husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage. The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a tirade listing every problem they have ever had in the 15 years they’ve been married. She goes on and on and on. Finally, the counselor gets up, goes [...]

That Friday Feeling

Another night at my fly tying class last night, very interesting.

On the way back home I got to discussing with Alex another river that we fish and just how special it actually is. The river is split with reeds and islands and weed beds making the currents form hundreds of small pools, riffles and [...]

The Complete Fisher

I see The Complete Fisher has had a new front end making it into a hub rather than simply a forum.

Sawyer said, “The successful [...]

Fish Wild – April 2007 Online

The April edition of Fish Wild is now online.

I particulary like Mike Connors article on what makes somebody an angler.

What many people completely fail to understand is that the number or size of fish is basically irrelevant to a true angler. Indeed, a true angler will quite happily spend hours trying to catch [...]

A View From the Bridge – Moored?

Tom Jervis over at A View From the Bridge is calling it a day due to ship based work being commercially sensitive . Tom’s writing and most excellent sense of humour has kept me amused for a good few years now.

I will return with a different format at a later date so for the [...]
