Various diary updates of fishing, wildlife, surfing and kayaking trips mainly in the West and South West of England. As I live near Bristol (UK) many of the blogs will be focussed around this area.

Its that time of year again when thoughts turn to Pike on the fly..
Red and I have been out roving the banks on those sunny Winter days looking for Pike. We have walked for miles in wonderful surroundings seeing relatively few anglers. Mainly on the Somerset levels and Bristol Avon searching the margins and reed beds with intermediate lines and large streamer flies. Most of the fish have been in the 2-5lb bracket but just occasionally a big one comes along and then its a struggle on a 7wt rod. We have even found that a bit of colour doesn't dissuade the takes.
