    Default Hello. I am Ben. Benthos Ben.

    Good Morning everybody,

    I'm a former Marine Ecologist, who got into lure fishing around the mangroves & coastal fringes of Northern Australia, while researching the ecology of fish assemblages in the same systems.

    Since returning to the UK I've been trying to get my hit from fly fishing, and have been having some fun on small stocked lakes around Essex, where I've been cutting my teeth for the past year.

    I'm now on a crusade to lose my wild trout virginity, and get a tase of what it's like to be a proper fly fisher - while hopefully meeting some characters along the way.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    Hi Ben and welcome.
    Looking forward to hearing about you popping your wild trout cherry
    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    Thanks. I'm heading up to the Cairngorms next weekend, and will be taking my 5wt with me - so it could happen soon. That's if the rain and midgies don't render the place hostile to human life.
