A Challenging Start

Monday, 28 November 2016

I found the fishing rather difficult last week. It might be because I'm not now highly tuned for these difficult shots and so not making the important ones count (and I missed some easy shots) or perhaps it's because I haven't been on the fish for the past four months and so have less active locations that I know that definitely hold fish. But the fish also appear to be spread out, not as active as I'd like mid-morning and there are no baby shots to be had when things are tough. Finally there has been quite a lot of boat organising done and rod sales have prevented me exploring the far south! However...

Beginners Luck!

Tuesday, 22 November 2016

You know how it goes: You’re headed out for a big trip. Your buddy wants to come along. He’s never held a rod before and can’t tie on a fly, but he’s ready to go. Now. So you’re going to take him.

My first day off after 50 days

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

Of course I went fishing! I woke up at 8 (in the morning - yes, I am not Paul) asking myself what to do today? Half an hour later I was in the water! I came out when the darkness arrived. Is there anything better in this world? Not for me!

Last casts...

Thursday, 1 December 2016

Last Sunday saw the BFCC’s last event of a busy year for the club. There have been 6 full competition meetings plus attendance at 6 country fairs or fishing shows where the club provided either tuition or a single competitive event.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in organising the BFCC’s activities. The regular casting instructors do such a great job, not just with those requiring tuition but with other instructors who are wanting to improve their teaching methods or are looking to take the next step within their chosen organisation.
Then there are the committee members who organise the events and other club activities, liaising with the venues and keeping the members informed of what’s going on etc. This can be a fairly thankless task at times, but vital to ensure the club members have everything they require on the day (those bacon sandwiches and coffees don’t turn up by chance).

Finally a big shout out to the dedicated members who make the effort to attend the meetings. Without people prepared to travel and then help out with the competitions, marking/timing etc., the events would be impossible to run. This was particularly evident at this year’s Game Fair where the club volunteers ensured that the single handed casting competitions were a success (the first time that the BFCC had been involved in running them).

sexyloops fly tying school - Dron Lee

Friday, 2 December 2016

Dron is a flyfisher and flytier from Malaysia. Wikipedia says: Malaysia is a federal constitutional monarchy located in Southeast Asia. It consists of thirteen states and three federal territories and has a total landmass of 330,803 square kilometres (127,720 sq mi) separated by the South China Sea into two similarly sized regions, Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia (Malaysian Borneo). Peninsular Malaysia shares a land and maritime border with Thailand and maritime borders with Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia. East Malaysia shares land and maritime borders with Brunei and Indonesia and a maritime border with the Philippines and Vietnam. The capital city is Kuala Lumpur, while Putrajaya is the seat of the federal government. With a population of over 30 million, Malaysia is the 44th most populous country. The southernmost point of continental Eurasia, Tanjung Piai, is in Malaysia. Located in the tropics, Malaysia is one of 17 megadiverse countries on earth, with large numbers of endemic species.

Very interesting stuff. Sorry I used Wikipedia as a source, but I do also donate to Wikipedia so that service is kept alive. You should too. - Sorry for the digression.

Onwards with talking about Dron and where he comes from. I became aware of him via Paul, who showed me some of his flies. I found them very interesting and wanted to know more about the man behind the patterns. So I arranged for a video chat with him.

Reach Spey Casts

Sunday, 4 December 2016

Why don’t more anglers incorporate aerial mends such as reach casts into their casting and fishing while using 2-handed (Spey and Switch) rods? I don’t know the answer, because I use them all the time. Here’s my pitch for why you should too.

Ronan's Report

A Couple of Doubles…

I wanted to explore some new water with the intention of locking in a backcountry day-trip for my guiding business. Looking at the map I expected the walk to take about 60 – 90 minutes so I set off. A recent heavy snow storm had brought down a lot of trees and limbs making the […]
