Lukes first on the fly

Took Luke to Four Springs.  Luke had fished a lot, and is an excellent fisherman.  But he had never caught a fish on a fly.

I gave him the 5 weight and an intermediate line with a Mrs Simpson fly.

After 15 minutes I got a touch from a good fish.  A bit later Luke got a good hit.  Then Luke saw a swirl and got into casting position.  The fish took, and it was a spectacular first fish.  3lb, in PERFECT condition.  An amazing fish!!!!

Broke 4 springs

Luke took Paul and myself out on his boat at 4 springs.  No fish.  Obviously, 4 springs has no fish in it -- as it couldn't be a problem with us.

Spin fishers

Got 4 and lost 2. Twice had spin fishers move right up to me -- they just didn't spot the car in the carpark or the fisherman standing by the tree casting!!!! One had a good excuse -- he was working down the bank, and so didn't see me until close. He still started casting about 20' away from me though!!!
