  2. Free At Last & Clattercote

    The reference to being 'free at last' is all about having finally moved into my refurbished apartment in Paris. After spending every week night since June 6th in hotels I finally got to move in last night to the new apartment.

  5. Weekend Happenings

    Well, Saturday's fishing was okay; a low and very clear Itchen didn't make things easy, but I did manage to fool a couple of old Trout in the deeper pools at the bottom of Beat 5.

    Nice looking fish too, typical soft yellow and brightly spotted fish that are the trademark on the lower river.

    I stopped of on the way home at a couple of spots on the upper Hampshire Avon and was quite surprised at how low the water level is at the moment. Very low and still a lot of weed, ...
