OFF AND FLYING

 Just started my fly fishing quest this weekend a very steep learning curve,i was lucky enough after 4 year wait joined the fly section of the local club,my first trip out i caught two fish sadly not trout


not huge but a fish on fly good start i was chuffed with them,another trip today i faired a lot better two chub and a perch,


hopefully get out in the week fingers crossed,really enjoying it as no bait to carry or a lot else

SEASON DRAWING TO A CLOSE

 Another pike fishing season is coming to a end,plenty of highs and a few lows,every single fish caught this season was caught on a lure via three when i switch to flies,which was my plan for the up coming season,most of my doubles where caught from the stour sorry every double,i did a couple of trips to the RMC and blanked,so my lures will be having a well needed rest,so my next outing will be the 1st of next month after trout,a few photos of the 36 pike i caught







never got my 20 but came close with a 17.5lb all to aim for next season,a big learning curve to come as the hook set on the flies is so diffferent as i missed 4 on saturday
