    Thumbs up Hello to everyone

    Thought a quick CV might serve as an introduction.
    I have fished the Taw and Mole in North Devon for Salmon and Sea Trout for some 15 years, maybe 5 days a year, using a 9'6" AFTM 8 rod built on a Sage RPL blank.
    I'm one of a 'roving' team of 3 veterans. Meeting up once a year for a 4 day 'Old Boys Adventure"!
    We have over the last 5 years fished the Nith, Annan, Border Esk, Wear, Tyne and in the process I have become a convert to the Switch rod and lately to the Double handed Salmon rod.
    I look forward to picking up useful tips and knowledge from you all.

    Fishing for 60 years and am still trying to understand why I do it, but I love misunderstandings

    Welcome GZT. I'm sure there are plenty of threads on here that will interest you given the content of your introduction.

    Actively participate and enjoy.
    I think I've got this work life balance thingy right.

    That is to say I spend more time in work thinking about fishing than I spend fishing and thinking about work!

    Default Thank you for a warm welcome.

    Thanks everyone for your welcome.
    Yes, you can lose a few lbs navigating the Mole all day, but then put it on eating a supper waiting for the bats to appear. last time we ate as we watched a parcel of Red deer on the opposite bank, and a fox catching the last light at the entrance of her earth. Sadly not a Peal or Sea trout seen, heard or felt. But that's fishing for migratory fish eh?
