Well that went quickly – Almost a year (to the day) ago I posted last, and I know it’s not cool… Things have been hectic, however, there has been plenty of fishing done and I have many stories, tips, product reviews and general fishing nonsense to tell… I’ll start the ball rolling for 2016 (albeit late!) with a couple of pictures from a short river … Continue reading It’s been almost a year!
