Nothing much to report the last few days. I was going to post a picture of my last trout of the season but for some reason my photo gallery is buggered up so I cannot upload photos. What I will do is point you towards my Flikr account where I keep some photos that I [...]
Alas, it is time to put my bamboo rod away for another season,
But fear not I shall still be tying flies and going the occasional pike session.
