Triangles, Grips and Engagement Rings

Monday, 16 October 2017

Firstly a big congratulations to Stuntman Ronan and Iza for getting engaged!!

Now, sometime during the middle of last week I uploaded a video on the importance of the Loop. Due next is the Grip and Lee's Triangle Method which are live today. I'm currently working on more videos and their respective pages at the moment. The more advanced stuff is coming! All up there are 64 videos, so it's quite a lot of work. I must thank Lena for helping me out moving videos around and uploading them to Vimeo. It saves me a very great deal of time - Jungle Internet is not all it's cracked up to be around here.

After what seemed like a dearth of flyfishing activity my plate overtopped in the last few days.

Be safe… (sort of)

Thursday, 19 October 2017

I was planning to do some more Instron mechanical testing for this week’s FP, however when I came to switch the machine on there was no power to the circuit. I suspect a breaker has been tripped somewhere upstream of my lab during one of the all-to-regular electrical safety checks and it now requires appropriately trained electrical specialists to track down where and why the power is off. This can’t be done by a single person, as the hazards associated with electrical work mean that two person working is the rule – and then only after formal ‘work authorisation’ has been given etc. When I read about certain institutions being charged £1000 to change a light bulb etc. I have a wry smile to myself as I can see on a daily basis where the costs can escalate. Working in a high hazard facility can be very frustrating at times.

End of story...

Saturday, 14 October 2017

Or - not quite - end of season is what it's really about, and then, not quite that either. Can you tell I haven't been fishing much the last 2-3 weeks? Something strange always happens around October 1st. Three of the salmon rivers in Western Jutland close on October 15th, and I'm always conscious about that around October 1st, thinking that I still have a fortnight to get in a few trips or three.

From brown to sea

Sunday, 15 October 2017

Like Lars I have the same problem that season end, so I had just a last chance to say goodbye to our brown trouts. It was just a small fish, but still nice to close the season with a few red spots in my hands. Now I'm just looking forward to the sea trout season in Denmark, sadly I have to wait a little bit until we can drive up but I can already tie some flies for the trip. A perfect match that there arrived just some new shrimp-legs from a danish company who like to make flytying really easy.

Ronan's Report

Message in a Bottle!

Shane and I decided we had time to walk in to the Black Lake and be back in time for dinner. The walk was usually 2 hours but Shane thought he might have a quicker way in if a certain bog road on google earth was firm enough to drive on. Thankfully it was and […]
