She is well excercised and exceptionally friendly and good with...

    Cumbrian derwent

    Returned this chunky hen fish today, surprised she only went 10 lb would have guessed her at 12-13 lb, the guy that netted her thought 14. Still good fun though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Season opener

    Well I wasn't meant to fish today, planning to start tomorrow but decided to have a sneaky hour blowing off the casting cobwebs, 15 minutes in and this got hold of a very girly looking pink conehead tube. Never broke my season duck as soon into my first trip so well pleased. Sent from my...

    took a little longer than Id hoped

    This season I got the chance of association membership as an outside rod on the Cumbrian Derwent at Cockermouth, bit of a punt some might say as plenty will tell you it's a river in decline and 4 years after the massive floods, plenty have told me it would be a year to forget. However membership...

As...

    This years additions

    Been putting a new collection together lately which is about half done. Decided to use doubles for a change as in the past my salmon flies have been predominantly tied on trebles. Bet you can't guess what my favourite colour combination is, but the other side will be out of my comfort...
