    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.

    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?

    Hello and welcome.
    I fish the Bray, just up from the old cider mill.
    Enjoy the knowledge and expertise on the forum.

    Nick.
