It's Hot Work

...wearing chest high waders in 30 degrees of heat... this fishing lark isn't always fun, but someone has to do it!

This week I happily caught another fresh salmon - 9lbs this time (alas no photo) - on a homemade Snaelda fly...I tied it the night before, having been spurred on by Jon chatting in the shop last week about the virtues of the great fly! It was made on a black size 9 Partridge hook, stocked at Tamar Field and Stream no less.

Rob seems stuck in the shop gun smithing upstairs whilst I go and play ... should I feel guilty?
