Out and about

Little bit of cabin fever set in last week, catching up with jobs at home under protest I might add, tying a few flies for next year and doing some river bank repair work. November is not the best of months for reliable weather, just when the river is beginning to settle in, more weather from the west appears and puts paid to it. I am waiting for those frosty still sunny days, where the river is low and clear for the serious grayling fly fishing to begin. There have been some very good specimens on the river this year so far, fish up to two pounds twelve the biggest up to present, looking forward to good conditions to have a proper go.
Spent the last day of the salmon season on the Annan yesterday with Anthony, it is probably the best it has been for some weeks now the season has finished. We will be doing a residential grayling school there this month.
Getting organised the salmon courses for the Tweed and Eden for next season, an instructor training day in April, Argentina in February and loads of other things, I will be glad when spring finally comes around once more!
