To past guests and those who have visited our web site before, you will notice a complete change. Technology was over taking us so we decided to employ professionals to build a new one. Apart from layout and appearance it is now user friendly on tablets and smart phones which are being used more and more to seek information and browse the web. We have cut out some text and added more photos and videos. Indeed one of the videos is of me catching a salmon! A unique occasion at which my son Donald used a drone to video me casting. After my second cast a salmon took the fly. Unfortunately about two minutes into the excitement he stepped on a wasps nest which caused some alarm and a lot of edited language! Sadly due to all of this, me landing the fish was not recorded. Incidentally all this took place last September 2016.
Another addition to our new web site is the ability to book and pay on line with credit cards.
Rainfall for April has been well below average which has unfortunately affected salmon fishing. However trout fishing has been good when it’s been overcast.. We spent a couple of days last week cutting ranunculus which is in abundance this season. I suppose as a result of low water and warm temperatures.
Needless to say weather unsuitable for fishing often suits the golfers and indeed this has been the case for most of April. The course at our local club (Bandon) is in excellent condition. Greens are fast at present but not as fast as Augusta!
We are opening an account on Facebook and hope to meet some of you on this. However we are staying clear of Twitter so please excuse us for that omission.
Finally please let us know if there are problems with our new site and feel free to make constructive criticism. Feedback will be most welcomed.
For now ‘tight lines’ anglers, and ‘plenty of birdies’ for golfers.
Best Wishes David & Pat.
