    As coincidence would have it the 2blhb Rhagium bifasciatum summed up the fishing for me yesterday, noticed this one making quite a commotion in the water when it was about 15 yards out, watched it on and off for a few minutes and rescued it when it was in range.

    Normally it wouldn't have lasted two minutes but the fish were resolutely down so it lived to fight another day.

    Just goes to show, you can offer fish the tastiest morsel and they'll totally ignore it if they're not in the mood, I managed one sprat sized fish for two hours before calling it a day.

    I spotted a big beetle in the water yesterday, while fishing our club water. I fished it out and instantly thought, "Ah, I know what you are!"

    There's been one crawling/flying about about the outside of our caravan for the past couple of weeks

    I don't know which particular species of longhorn beetle it was, but many years ago when we had the log cabin, a couple of the big logs in one of the main walls got infested by longhorn beetles and their grubs. We had to replace the logs and treat all the others.

    This from Google images...
