wet and wild in scotland

I have just returned from a very wet and windy weekend in Scotland on my favorite perch lake. Despite having to battle rain, sleet, hail, snow and a falling water temp. In true tradition, my brother Jeff put on a datf hat, climbed on board the Fury and within an hour was holding a new personal best of 3lb 2oz. Top stripy bro.

Slash gets another Big Whisker!

Slash realised like many of us that the esox had spawned in the rivers but thought he would head for the Severn for a last go at the barbel and landed this beauty pictured above. What a cracker! Well done Slash!
