I literally had to hack the cobwebs off of my fly rods with a chisel. Other styles of fishing had my attention over the last few years, but I've had a weird desire to chuck fluff again this year, and while we've been battered by constant storms recently, I decided to ease myself back in gently with a trip to an East Lothian (Scotland) commercial fishery - Markle.

I find Flyfisshing to be highly addictive I started to take it up again about four years ago and now i do little else, my coarse gear is lying unused in the loft nad the only sea fishing i do is a spot of LRFing in the summer months , when flyfishing in the South East beomes a chore.
