I donâ€™t know about anyone else (well I know a couple of people) but I am already missing warm summer days, lazily flicking a little dry fly upstream to a rising trout. The season has only been finished a month and I am already feeling stir crazy.
The evenings are dark at 5pm its dark in the morning, itâ€™s raining, miserable. Why did I not appreciate the hot days, even the ones we did not catch any fish.
And then the evenings with clear blue skies when I seen hot air balloons drifting in the sky whilst blue winged olives hatched.
This is making me worse !
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 !
