A Year Gone By

As always Roach and Chub off the Ribble I'm now
making a few floats, it's a little like tying flies when
the float dips a real feeling of satisfaction.

Phil with a Barbel  he's now only half the man he was then!!
Sometimes you need to travel to find a fish but not always
fly fishing in Bolton!
He could not hide the joy of finally catching a Flash Tench

Ok time after time I say I will get back to the blog. Well sometimes you need a bit of a kick up the backside. It's been way to long, a new camera some new waders on the way and the normal veiws of Matt "north country angler", which got me started on this in the first place always inspires. Well with the bad weather I found my time being spent looking on the web. I started making a few floats which I will post about at some point. Then I came across Glen Pointon and his soft touch shrimp again somthing to inspire. I found myself full of interest again, posting a few shody attemps on the fly forums. The next thing Im on here looking forward to a new year with new drive. So here is the soft touch shrimp which as give me the kick up the arse. Search "Glen Pointon" or "soft touch shrimp" his blog as a step by step and video of how to tie it. I will put a link up when I do my next post which will be a best of 2012.

''A Thought''

A simple philosophy I have adopted over the years has been tested and re-enforced in the past few weeks. It is to celebrate those good and pleasing things encountered in daily life, no matter how small, with at least the same vigour as I bemoan the bad or merely vexing.
