The season is underway and it has been great to get on the water with people again. There has been rain and a fair bit of it at times but I’m not going to whine. It is March after all and things can be a little erratic. this time last year I was guiding in shirt sleeves. They say variety is good and I’m not going to argue.
I have been keeping a eye out for large dark olives and yesterday (Tuesday) I saw my first one. I am hoping this continues along with some good settled weather.
I got a nice email from Philip after some tuition this week.
Thank you for all the information Pete it will be very useful it was brilliant. Your enthusiasm must be infectious , I am looking forward even more to some great sport this year. Many thanks Phil
My fly boxes are full and my waders are only leaking a little. I am hoping that a new pair arrives soonish and I plan to rotate to see if I can get a little longer out of them.
It was great to see The Wild Trout Trust auction raise over £52,000. I put an auction lot in with the hotel every year and was pleased to learn the person who won it last year won it again this year. I’m looking forward to seeing him on the Taw in May.
In the meantime I am getting Issue 16 of Eat, Sleep, Fish ready and it looks like there will be some nice stuff in it that we hope you’ll enjoy.
