Kiwi bloke walks into the bedroom with a sheep under his arm. ‘Darling’, he says, ‘this is the pig I have sex with when you’ve got a headache’. Girlfriend lying on the bed says, ‘I think you’ll find that’s a sheep, not a pig’. The bloke says, ‘and I think you’ll find I wasn’t talking to you’.

Pity the UK trout season is over, saying that though she would probably enjoy our PIke sessions, they are more like a walk in the park anyway !
Someone left a comment the other day with a link to the Hardgate and District Angling Club
the other day when I was posting about Greenside.
A nice little site about the Cochno Loch and Jaw Reservoir which I would like to fish next year if someone fancies taking me as a guest ~hint Hint~
Itâ€™s all quiet on the fishing side after the â€œpikeâ€ fishing trip last week. Last week I even missed my fly tying night as I was stuck in the house doing some painting.
Started my new job on Monday, now that wss a scary prospect. I got my new contract through and I see there is a flexitime system to save up hours for important â€œthingsâ€ woohoo.
Here is a picture of Emmanuelle with a rather nice Grayling that he caught down at my other special river. It was all action when the wind died down but every time it started to blow it would all stop.
We had gone Grayling fishing and I ended up catching two trout.
Here is a spider that had to be ejected from my house.
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 share with some people. You can look at it here or if you look down the right hand side of the blog (over the Tea Stick Rod) you will see a photo stream you can click on that.
I bought some fly tying materials the other day, some deer hair and some more CDC. This winter I am determined to stock my fly box with a meaty selection of fliesâ€¦..flies that I will show you pictures of at some point.
Over and Out !
Ah yes, that was what I said…..a deep river…I have caught Pike there in the past…hell Claire caught Pike their in the past…..except now we will be armed and dangerous!!
Where did it all go wrong?
We had wire traces, giant plugs that rattled (mine cost Â£1.50 but Alex bought Rapalas at 10 quid each) a nice autumn day and a river that was stuffed full of Pike. It had all the ingredients for a major day of predator fishing.
Why then did we end up totally blanking? In fact you could say we had a negative count of fish as allegedly Charlie hooked a Sea Trout (which none of us seenâ€¦he had a Toby on as he had sent his girlfriend into town to pick up lures).
We were doing everything right…..like er…casting out and retrieveing slowly….my rattling plug scraping the bottom…its only a matter of time we kept telling each other
Should have gone to the canal!
