I'm covering for Gary today, from Thailand as it happens. Ashly and I have popped up here for three days to sort out my VISA (always a hassle), do a lot of Sexyloops work (the stuff that I haven't been doing because I've been fishing of course) and eat a Green Curry.
Tactics on Coastal Sea trout

Some different tactics on fly fishing for coastal Sea trout.
Thursday, 20 April 2017
A quick update from our trip. The shark fishing on the Bahamian flats can be frustrating. We’ve both cast to sharks over this last week and experienced some interesting fishy behaviour. A couple of days ago, James cast at a 70-80lb shark whilst wading a flat; it looked like a perfect cast to intercept the shark as it moved across the undulating flat with the fly sinking to the right depth. However once the line landed the shark simply did a 180 turn and slowly swam away, though it didn’t spook. Had it seen the flash of the rod, or sensed the line landing on the water? We have no idea. On another day, a 100lb+ shark came to look at the fly and then spooked and quickly swam away. I had a 30lb one follow my fly to the shore and not take it and then swim away. We did see a huge shark, perhaps 150lb, on a flat but it was always out of casting range. We’ll keep trying and hope that we find some that are in feeding mode, are in casting range and that want to ‘eat’ our flies.

In the last decade, some rivers have produced really magnificent salmon over 20kg, and I think the biggest from 2016 just pushed the 18kg mark on the scales. These salmon are truely impressive and massive, strong bars of chrome and silver. - hardly a visible scale on them.
How to tie a... pike snack
Sunday, 23 April 2017
I have the honour to write for Matt today, because he is busy. I\\\'m still preparing the slowly starting season, only a week left until we can fish again for pike. Today there was quite a lot of work with bringing the boats from our club back into the water. So now more and more toughs are going back to pike fishing. Here one of my favourite pike pattern in stillwater in a step by step for you
