So woke up today full of hope. The sky was blue (it was forecast for rain) and there was no rain (it was forecast for rain). Got picked up by my fishing partner and we headed down to another river for a spot of early season dry fly action. We got there and usually it […]
So today I had one of those crazy â€œI think I am going to drown momentsâ€. I had waded out to the middle of the river that I was fishing. Rather foolhardy really. It was difficult fishing in the wind and you had to get yourself into particular positions to be able to present a […]

Well, I know it will be worth it , but it is a fair old treck to get to these parts….
What you […]
