Recent Events

Friday and Saturday last week was spent at The Scottish Game Fair, at Scone Palace, working for guide fly fishing with good friend, Jim Fearn. I enjoy these events because it's a good chance to talk to like-minded people.

Then an early start Sunday morning travelling down to the North East to give casting demonstrations and tuition at a local event. After a wet start, a good day was had by all.

Most evenings, recently, have been spent tuning up casting, in between fishing. After a long dry spell we finally have some water back in the rivers which has improved the fishing massively, as my son found out on Sunday during his first river fishing experience. Just like anybody's first attempt at river fishing it took him a while to get accustomed to the flowing water but his determination was rewarded and he caught over 10 fish for the day! That's an exceptionally good day for any fisherman, let alone a novice, and, when he was so enthusiastic about the fish he'd caught, I didn't have the heart to tell him that, that sort of thing doesn't happen often. Let's hope his enthusiasm doesn't fade away as the blank days start rolling in.
