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 while still trying to maintain an ordinary life. You probably don’t have enough time to fit it all in. I certainly don’t.

I have been enjoying reading the posts in your new little bulletin board – I am very impressed that there are almost 60 members in just a few weeks. Members have helped me out with getting the formatting just right so things just look slightly dodgy as opposed to utterly terrible.

Every time I have a look in I have noticed a couple of members or a few guests having a nosey around. If you are a guest please join up and say hello and if a member please leave a message – would be great to hear where you guys have been fishing or what you learned from your last trip. I decided on adding the forum as I am not so egocentric to think you guys want to hear what I have got to natter about all the time.

I have noticed a big influx of visitors the last few weeks due to my adventures with fly fishing for Pike (that’s Northern Pike to my friends over the pond) and reader Scott has been regaling us all in the forum with his adventures at his local pond (no place names in the forum allowed, the last thing I want to do is be responsible for a particular spot becoming hard fished). Also on the Pike front is interesting discussions around wire traces and what material to use.

There have been a few posts in the Kelvin section and I see some old faces and some new ones are cropping up as the weeks go by – looking forward to some intense debate over the coming close season about what people think the best way forward for the Kelvin should be. I also loved hearing about an incident involving the local police and fire service and a well known Kelvinator – I will let you go and read it yourself. 

If you have not joined as a member please head over now and say hello – a bit like an addiction meeting where you are allowed to fully embrace and talk about your problem without feeling ashamed.

    The weekend isn’t so great when you know you are going to spend the whole of it moving house instead of fishing 🙁
