January

January can be funny month, not a lot happening springs to mind, winter species are nearly over and the summer ones are still a while off, months in fact, I am seriously looking forward to lots of kayak fishing this coming summer.
Ben managed to sneak one from the margins last weekend, and on a carp rod!

We are heading out to Thailand in a week or so to take in some jungle treking, and I have the feeling that I might get away with sneaking a travel 8 weight and a spinning rod into the deal, after all there are one or two strange fish out there, tempting!

Elliot and I built a rather large picnic table last week, to put a twist and a touch of class to any future fishing lunches, or dinners.

I know for a fact there have been a few people with those expensive red rods spending a little time around one of Dorset’s most southerly points trying to catch something on a lure, they are keeping their results fairly quiet…..and I have seen no pictures……

January has been a month of meetings with various bodies, a huge amount of work in my role as vice chairman of the FP&WDFA raising funds for projects on Dorsets famous chalk streams, a great couple of weeks redd counting, and now planning for this coming year.

We have for the first time ever, placed an advert in the Dorset Life, trying to push the pond side of the company.

We (cheers to fellow GF director) have also, as previously mentioned launched a new fantastic website http://www.guidedfishing.co.uk/ and as part of our guiding service been asked to continue guiding for http://www.fishingbreaks.co.uk/ including the world famous One Fly compitition on the river Test…..How exciting…..Thanks to Jon Bond and all the test guides.
