Road Trip

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

I have fished it a few times now and have to say I am smitten with the Ure, a river in North Yorkshire. Emma and I hit the road and travelled the 350 odd miles to our friends to have a day’s fishing on what is a great stream. I don’t know about day tickets etc. and am not sure that they are available so I am lucky our friends are members of a club that allows a guest ticket or two.

First of the day

We thought the weather was against us but it turned out to be pretty good and it was fun catching fish on dries and fishing the fast runs with nymphs.

As much as I love our streams in the Westcountry it is nice to fish some other streams from time to time.

So it was a day’s fishing and we travelled 700 miles for it but I think it was worth every second!

Hope you are enjoying the latest instalment of Eat, Sleep, Fish

 

Grand Opening

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

This weekend I have been getting the latest issue of Eat, Sleep, Fish ready for next week. There have been some amazing articles this month and it is looking a great issue. Keep an eye out for it next week.

Last April and a bit of a mess

Also after over a year of waiting, my fly tying den is now officially open. We had a bit of a mishap last April when the heavy winds lifted 1 1/2 tonnes of barn roof off of our neighbour’s outbuilding and flew it over 100 meters to send it through the roof of our house. My tying desk took most of the brunt of the devastation and I lost a lot of stuff but today I was able to get up there and tie a few flies to mark the occassion.

I decided to tie something a little different, some Stimulators that I will give a go soon and I know they will come in handy for an upcoming trip.

It is another busy week coming up so it has been good to gather some breath, get the mag ready and try the new tying den out. I like it.
