Fishing Season 2018
« on: January 08, 2018, 21:11 »
Thought I would start a new fishing season thread for this year.

I have no plans as yet for the first session however I have bought a new coat ready. I have given up on gortex for fishing, its great for other areas but it needs to be kept clean to stay waterproof.
I now dress like a hurah henry in me waxed jacket  :D so I reckon it wont be long before I am out again.

I used to love the old wax jackets. The first one I had was a Bob Church one which was at the cheaper end of the market and cost £30 back in 1987. That jacket lasted me 7 hard years, of serious fishing, working on Mam n Dads small holding, air rifle hunting, beating on local shoots, and general outdoor wear (you know pottering round the garden, dog walking etc). Also came on may field trips whilst studying at Plymouth Poly. I was given a Solway Barbour in 1995, did not last as well sadly!
Tight Lines for the forthcoming season, its AGM and ticket renewal time here in West Wales.

When manky Barbour jackets became fashionable it was the only time i have been a fashion leader ! :)

Still got a lightweight Gamefair jacket in good order, but it does not get out much because it is still heavy compared to modern stuff.
Beach or boat a waterproof smock is favourite for keeping dry .

Chatting with me owd mate over crimbo during our blizzard encounter on the rezzy he still sea fish's up here in Blackpool, he was saying the fishing compared to when I was a younger model of myself is thousands of times better and we are now seeing species we rarely saw. I still have all me owd gear so might just have a trip out again or at least show the young lass how to nightline.

Yes I've been tempted to buy some sea fishing gear, my heavy salmon spinning rod will do for some parts of sea fishing but specialist gear would probably help.

These are certainly better than the ones we used to clip on our rod tips, luminous after keeping them under the bedside light as long as we dared before getting told off  :D :D  Snap and they last all night. Even the next night if I put them in the freezer when we get back home  :D

Spent a couple of hours tying some Zug Bugs today, never heard of them and found it by accident, I believe its an old american pattern, similar to a stonefly nymph in looks, mainly consists of peacock feather. It does look like it could be very productive.
Weather looks awful next week so no fishing planned so I think I will start tying the nymphs ready for spring.
