Who am I?

An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

Starting to make sense

Our carp campaign is gaining momentum as we learn more about the venue and the fish we seek. Benno is already three - one up, the benefit of not working shifts demonstrated by his results all being afternoon captures. I bucked the trend and took a nice fish, just before 07.00 hrs, this morning. Fantastic fun on the split cane Mk IV and Mitchell 300. We've a long way to go, before we can make any claims to having learnt the water, but it is an encouraging start.


  1. Those two fish are only one pound different in weight, looking at it in the pictures, there could be ten pounds ! Just goes to prove that cameras don't always tell the truth when it comes to fishing !

  2. Bob - cheers for that! We're having a really good time, at present. It will never be hectic but, there are some proper big fish waiting to be caught - let's hope that one comes our way? Wendy and Milton Keynes good I hope? Take care and stay safe - Dyl
