Greeting new readers and urban veterans – if you are a long time reader then do not switch off as you may find out something interesting.
Visitors have jumped in the last month or so and I thought I would tell you again how to access the content of Urban Fly Fisher as well as [...]
(I wrote this post back in February 2011 – I have no idea whether they still use sex to sell fly fishing gear #grin#)
Oh Hardy – you used to be all butlers and stupidly expensive reels – where did it all go horribly wrong?
So I got home [...]

Well, a few days of interesting life has past since we last spoke.
