Tarn and tarn again

A couple of snaps from a recent potter up to a lakeland tarn with my erstwhile fishing partner Nick. Days like this are precious when time on the water is restricted by the needful duties of fatherhood.

Another spot of good fortune

What a belting Sunday! A healthy quotion of real ale, followed by a City victory......followed by this lump. Despite the rubbish weather, this season is shaping up to be a memorable one. The orange bodied Elk Hair Caddis did the damage yet again; this has to be my favourite dry fly of all time.

Reasons not to lie in bed on Saturday morning - Part one



This lump took a goldhead hare's ear this morning and made me one happy Easter bunny. A personal best, and a fabulous start to the season. Whoooooooooooooooooo-ya!

Victorian style pike fishing


.....with a top hat. Minus the cholera. With a pike.

Long live the Salford Friendly Anglers Society, instituted 1817.

2011 - The year in pictures















I've been a little preoccupied for the last year........but managed to get out and do some fishing nonetheless. Here is a photo summary of 2011.
