  1. Saturday...

    Woke up to a fine day so decided to have a peche on the Coln. Arrived at around 11.00 to find I had the river to myself so started at the bottom of the beat and fish methodically up searching for pods of grayling. Tackling up with a weighted pink shrimp on the point an a size 16 pink gold-head on a dropper I fished upstream for a about 1/4mile, picking up 3 small grayling and one nudging about 1/2lb on the way, all falling to the dropper. Lots of browns showing on the redds which was a pleasure ...

  2. No fins today

    Blowing a gale, had to go to London for a few hours this morning, I've just had all my jabs for South America (and am feeling a tad 'dodgy') plus I've just given up smoking! So... no fishing today.
    I WILL get out for a tomorrow for a spot of grayling fishing on the Coln.

  5. SWFF success and failure...

    Day afloat in the Fal estuary with Austen Goldsmith last Sunday. Early start to catch the tide and into a fish off the top on a Gurgler pretty quickly. Can't beat catching any fish on the surface and bass hit the fly pretty hard. A few more bass and plenty of pollock plus one mackerel made a great day out. The new rod is starting to feel good. Casting an 8wt with a big fly is hard work after a season of making stealthy casts to small wildies on 2, 3 and 4wts but get the timing right and the line ...
