O.k then, who`s interested in a days fly fishing in the next few weeks?
I was thinking Saturday the 29th November down at Hazel Copse, just outside Guildford,
15 1 fish ticket, catch and release all day.

Glyn, did the insurance replace your fly gear? [;)]

Sarto, had a few hours on the Wey a couple of weekends back, saw a nice Grayling caught by an angler we passed.
We parked 1 car at one end of the stretch and one at the other and had a healthy 2 mile walk through countryside, cow fields, horses etc and trotted a float.
I had a nice chub of a couple of pound, which was a good fight on 2.5 lb line and a centerpin!!
The river is very nice, incredibly clear and i was a little gutted to have forgotten my cap and glasses as fish spotting would have been a lot easier.

Well worth a winters morning, in fact i cant wait to go back.

Sounds good mate , I haven't been over that way for a while but looks like I might be swapping the motorbike for a car soon and if that happens it will make life a lot easier for fishing . Hopefully I will be down that way after xmas for some winter chubbing .[:)]

Glad you got the Prodigy replaced, i`d be gutted to loose mine [;)]

Im sure between Jon and myself we can sort a spare rod and reel, i have flies, tippets etc.

Ill bell Martin tomorrow see if hes around too, will be a fun day, its a laid back place, no-one watching my fine figure of eight casting [:D]

As already said everyone is welcome.

Thinking about it, Wilf has spare rods, reels etc as i borrowed one last time i snapped mine there!! maybe ill give him a call and find out.

I`m 85% there on the 29th, work depending.

May have nothing in January so i need to try to get as much in now as possible, i`ll know after this weekend.
