Was looking forward to this one from well out. Having been unable to attend last year after the dates being moved several times I felt I had missed out.
I would not normally take the time to make an entry for such a short session, but on this occasion it was so good I thought to give it a short mention.
A busy week of travelling and fishing has left me woefully behind with keeping the blog up to date. So I am going to try and catch up as best I can this week.
I doubt there are few fly anglers that have never heard of the River Test it is one of the great English rivers.
It’s just great when work and fishing collide, I was asked to hand deliver some paper work in the area and the rest of the day was mine. I had arranged for a guest ticket for my buddy Graham Lumsdon for the West Amesbury Fishery.
I had not had the chance to get out with my old mucker Graham Lumsdon since our trip to Slovenia. So I gave him a call and asked if he fancied a short trip down to his old stomping grounds on Dartmoor.
By coincidence I often have to travel down to Andover for very short meetings. It would be a real shame to have travelled all that way and not take advantage of the excellent fishing opportunities to be had all over the area.
All year I have been trying to find a date in the diary to co-ordinate a trip to a chalk stream with Alan Ward. We go back a long way through the Army, Alan now works as a semi professional photographer
I had shared a boat with Graeme Ferguson way back in April on Rutland water. We had discussed the prospect of a day on the river then but I had forgotten all about it to be honest.
By chance I managed to get the work fishing balance just right a meeting in the area that afternoon left a spare morning to explore some of the Salisbury & District water.
