Improving Times

So the snow has gone at last, even got on the golf course this week and you'd never have known how bad the weather had been.....the course is in great shape. Signed up to attend a fish-in with the new BFW lads which means meeting up with my old (some older than others) fishing mates from the good old days and I'm really looking forward to that provided I can get all my gear dusted down and sorted out in time.
The days are getting longer and will soon be getting warmer hopefully, happy days ahead.

Passing the time away

When oh when is this snow going to clear off, our golf course is still covered with a thick blanket of snow, access to my nearby river is hopeless and soon the snow melt and everything horrible will be going through. Anyway I've been looking through my photos and found this one, taken in Spain in April 2006, we were asked by a group of German lads if we would help weigh a fish for them as they weren't tall enough to hold the weigh bar, imagine our surprise when this emerged.......all 197lbs of it (evidently a river record at the time) , first time I had set eyes on a catfish and what a specimen it was.

A 20lb carp caught on a 1.5 t/c barbel rod and waggler last May,

This is our home and the base for my fishing exploits, Cornwall, Ontario and its only a 20 minute drive from the best Carp fishing in the world. I will update on the fishing when I go out there in May, in the meantime its day to day stuff and the golf I'm afraid.................that is when the snow decides to go
