Hurricane Accuracy

Monday, 20 August 2018

Another world championships in flycasting has just finished. This one was held in tropical Cumbria in North England. It was windy, in fact at times it was very windy indeed! Surprisingly perhaps not all the distances were as huge as one might expect in such conditions, possibly because many of the casts were made from an earthen spit and the wind curved up from below the caster, not allowing lower back cast trajectories. A great meet, awesome to meet so many truly great friends again (come to the jungle between now and next time!) and another World Championships under our belts.

Ho Hum Summer

Tuesday, 14 August 2018

I managed to fish down the Everglades mangals a few times over the last couple weeks. I had not been fishing there for a while. I was hoping that time will sooth the situation that Hurricane Irma left us. It is hard to see much improvement yet. The water is still very tannin stained and full of algae, but there are some fish playmates willing to have some fun.

It's not like the water in the brackish ‘glades was crystal clear to start with. The water usually carried some or a lot of tannins depending on the time of year, but sighting fish cruising along in the shallows used to be possible. Not now. It looks like it will take some time for things to settle out. The good news is some fish have habits that allow them to still be targeted.

Fishing or Training for the World Championship

Wednesday, 15 August 2018

I am truly looking forward to go to the World Championship in Fly Casting TOMORROW. Fair to say I should have trained my distance casting during the last days (better weeks). But then again NOTHING beats fishing! So I went fishing this morning again... ;)

All Prepped

Thursday, 16 August 2018

Our week has been taken up with casting practice for this weekend’s World Championships in Millom, Cumbria. By the time this FP is posted we should be on our way up north, no doubt stuck in a traffic jam on the M6 somewhere. I’m not sure either of us is going to be that competitive (given our poor form in practice) however we’re both looking forward to a great weekend, hooking up with a lot of old friends and getting to meet some we know through Facebook etc. for the first time.

I'm writing this from a small cabin overlooking the Gaulfoss, which is rather amazing. The river has been up and down a few times, which should be good, but we aren't seeing loads of fish. None the less, it's all really fantastic.

Still no water...

Sunday, 19 August 2018

A few minutes rain thru the last few weeks was not enough to help our rivers and our fish. Gladly the temperature came under 30° but the grayling population had already big losses. In some rivers it's already fix that there will be a fishing stopp for grayling minimum one year to help to protect the "rest". Also the nice river 10 minutes away from our home has really shallow water...

Ronan's Report

A Heatwave in Ireland & Becoming “MR STEEL TESTICLES”, 2018.

When Iza and I arrived in Dublin we were surprised to walk into a wall of heat getting off the plane. I thought we got off at the wrong country! We boarded a westbound bus and watched the temperature rise to 30 celsius by the time we made Galway. It turned out we landed right […]
