Basketball FINALLY over!

Monday, 2 August 2021

Back in May, Jackson decided he wanted to play summer league basketball. I have never really been a "team sport" guy, but when I became a dad in 2008, I vowed that I would support him in whatever he wanted to do, whether it was something I was interested in or not.

An information minefield

Tuesday, 27 July 2021

I had my second Sinovac shot last weekend and so apparently am back to being invincible. Just a bit tired at the moment. Hopefully Malaysia can vaccinate itself out of the current mess! And finally, after losing fish and otherwise making some very poor shots, I’ve managed to land Snakehead again and so I am back in the running again. It was strange being in a fishing slump and I’m delighted to have put fish in the boat again… now open the floodgates! There are both free-risers as well as adults/babies active. I’ve missed the free-risers!!

This is a tale of two rods.

I managed to get a couple of those largemouth bass down the park on dry flies yesterday after I finished my last practice session and I flew down to Okinawa this morning, eager to get on the water. I was pretty pleased as the plane landed, conditions were good and the airport front lagoon looked amazing.

Itchy on the balls

Friday, 30 July 2021

This week was little bit more quite with fishing. One day teaching casting and fishing techniques, one tvshoot and one about full day guiding. It is amazing how fast water levels can go down. Temps are okay now even level has go down. Colder nights and coolers days has been taking care of that. That is great news. Forecast is that we will have heavy rain on coming days so levels should go higher again. Let’s go on my itchy balls.

Today we have an use a lot more high tech gear, which I love, use and like. Many of the features of modern tackle really are genuine improvements. Some of them tend to result in a limited lifespan compared to decades old tackle still in use.

More dates for the diary

Sunday, 1 August 2021

This week, James and I have been distance casting, practicing for both the virtual events and the last three BFCC Meetings of 2021, one of which is in less than two weeks in Derbyshire. This is a new location, proffered by one of our long-standing members after also helping to get an article on the BFCC in the Trout and Salmon magazine. The success of the BFCC is founded on all the members who volunteer to support the Meetings and help promote the club. The club wouldn’t be here if not for these members.

Ronan's Report

Saving My Sanity!

I never worry when the regular season ends because we have good winter fishing locally. That said, last winter was hard work, so I hoped for better fishing this winter. The winter season usually kicks off with a bang as some big rainbows move up river in May. This year saw very few fish move […]
