    Default Salmon fishers love leaning over bridges - now you can - almost!

    Google has launched its new 'Street View' mapping system with a claimed 90%+ coverage of the UK. It seems perfect for us fishers who like to stop the car and take a look. This Google technology is amazing and here are a few examples of it in use: (Use the arrow keys to move/look around)

    Bridges over Tweed

    Bridges over the Tay

    Bridges over the Dee

    Bridges over the Wye

    Default Rivers in 3D! True or April fool?!

    The Google Street View maps which give amazing views of rivers now too are available in 3D - well a little 3D man has appeared anyway!

    Does anyone have a pair of 3D specs (Cyan and red) to see what they look like? Simply click the little man on the left of the photograph. This appeared on April 1 so there is some talk of a hoax - but it seems too substantial a change to me so I'm pretty sure it is real.

    Here is the Laerdal river* in Norway - this would look good in 3D!

    * Sadly this once great river is closed to fishing because of Gyrodactylus salaris.

    Amazing stuff. Even more amazing is how they managed to take all those pictures of the Wye - and not a single canoe?????????????

    One of the members on here can be seen putting his waders on/off before/after fishing one of his favourite rivers.

    My lips are sealed though!
