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.
Tough COLD Week
Wednesday, 26 April 2017
The last week we had pretty low air temperatures peaking at minus 4 degrees Celsius in the night. During the day the temperature topped out at around 3 degrees. In between we were facing snow and ice falling down at us. All in all a great week of strong coastal Sea trout fishing!
Hooks; be sharp, be strong - is that too much to ask?

Tracy and I are still enjoying ourselves on Long Island, for the month of April we can compete with Paul and Bernd for the most days fished – so far we haven’t missed one. Today (I’m writing this on Sunday – how’s that for efficiency?) was not great in terms of the weather – poor light all day and a howling gale, but we went out regardless to keep the record up. We didn’t add to our bonefish tally though.

We - that is Konstanse and yours truely - like the ducks in the pic - are about to cross the line. We are moving together. It´s pretty exciting stuff and a big step for two so independent people like us to decide ... bla bla bla - you know the drill.
So there is not much fishing to report. I did a bit on my recent Germany / Austria trip. But it was far from enough.
In the light of the recent HT hysteria - the above mentioned means also that HT4 #7 and number #9 will be under one roof. HT4 #7 is Konstanses first ever flyrod.

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
