I have lots of work to do – I have one essay due in around 2 weeks and even though I have a good plan guess what am I thinking about constantly?
Yup – Pike slamming into my horrors down on the canal.
I think about it when driving, when falling asleep, in meetings, at [...]
How much would you pay for a seasons fishing?
I contributed to a thread (you may have to register) recently on a forum about what the maximum would be you would pay for a day’s trout fishing. I thought if it was a one off special occasion on a special river I may pay up [...]
I stood outside today and noticed how cold it was – a cold lazy wind that goes right through you rather than around you. Brrrr It reminds me (or rather not actually) of the other kind of cold you can get – during summer when at one point you have been roasting hot and [...]
Someone asked me to elaborate on the conversation I had with the farmer regarding the cows drooling on my car.

Around a month ago, it feels like ages now, deciding on [...]
Hiya, I have actually been doing some fishing but unfortunetly there has been a major clash of the titans between work and my intense fly fishing addiction. In the meantime, why dont you check out my photo gallery…
Next week i am meeting up with Gareth from Fishing in Wales and [...]
So while England is being flooded Scotland remains relatively rain free (so far). However the weather has been strange of late – there is a distinct lack of what you might think of as “proper” summer weather. There have been no warm days to think about an evening session, or rather I suppose we all [...]
