HA HA HAAAA HA HA !!
Was looking at some old posts today, for new readers thought it would be nice for you to have a gander through them…
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.
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.
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.
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!
