Talking of best catches…

I noticed Murdock over at Flyfish Magazine is posting pictures of his wife to gain some brownie points – nice thinking !

Here is a picture of my long suffering wife of three years (to be fair though we have been together 12)

Do I need to tell you what she puts up [...]

Backhand compliments..

I am laid up with a rather nasty throat bug.

I was looking through some of the blogs I visit when I came across this post over at Taunted by Waters.

Essentially someone had linked to him and pointed out that he did not do much fishing however his writing was good for a [...]

We are gathered here today…

North Country Angler wrote a great post about death and dying – well, not really great – more sombre and well written – you know what I mean!

Anyway, it got me thinking – he rose some very good points about where he wanted his ashes to be scattered and where probably they should not [...]

Fridays..

That Friday feeling is great – you wake up in the morning and you just know you only have a few hours to go before you are the longest time period away from being back at work on the Monday – between those two points you must fill in as much time as possible fishing [...]

Way back in the beginning I remember emailing Marshall Cutchin at Midcurrent who was one [...]

Fish Bum Mongolia DVD winner

Ok OK – I promise this was not a fix – the winner of the Fish Bum Mongolia DVD was in fact my long time fishing buddy (now moved away and riverless) Emanuele. Ironically he did not even send in the photo, his pal from the states took the time to send me these pics [...]

I loathe the saying “tight lines”

I loathe the saying “tight lines” – I can remember when people started using it (or possibly when I first noticed it) and I try and avoid it as much as possible. To me it just seems twee or maybe just a wee bit cheesy. Somehow it always makes me feel slightly uncomfortable – a [...]

Attack Force “Delta Flies”

Look at em’, all standing to attention like soldiers, like a trained fighting force – the elite! Like the SAS – all ready to attack the rivers full force. Just waiting for their orders although in this case it will be an order to land gently possibly several feet away from a rising trout – [...]

To Whom It May Concern:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to complain about the lack of spring time weather we have been experiencing over the last two weeks.

I would have hoped that by now there would be plenty of lambs in the fields, trees starting to bud, the sun on my face and more importantly flies having vigorous sex [...]
