    Welsh Tuna

    I thought they had to go back as they are protected. Could be wrong on this. Dave
  2. I am by no means expert or in a place to answer your question but why not post on this forum, very helpful and a lot of knowledge from the people there. http://www.flyfishing.co.uk/forums.php Dave
  3. I have seen Pipe Lagging used, just wind the leader around the lagging and secure with a cut off paper clip or similar. Dave
  4. Lymington Marina whilst I was waiting for the ferry home to the Isle of Wight Dave
  5. Tony, it is in Herefordshire. Have a look here. http://www.fisheries.co.uk/kingfisher/index.htm Dave
  6. I am sure you only go there for the Bacon Sarnies. Tight Lines mate. Dave
  7. A Cornish Sunset from last year I think. Dave

    The roof

    Had to use a knife on these because of the thickness and hardness of them. Also had to drill nail holes in them, too hard for the pck to go through. Dave

    The roof

    Hi Andrew. No they are not those foreign slates. They are Cumbrian natural slate, hard as stone and when tapped they ring like stone as well. Bugger to cut as they are so hard. Being Heritage they wanted traditional tools and methods. Easy to say but not so easy to do. Dave

    The roof

    I did a bell tower on a local church a while ago for English Heritage. Before A couple after. Damn cold up there as it was just after Christmas a couple of years ago. Dave
  11. All I can see is a load of fishing flies walking around. Dave
  12. Sorry guys the pic is way too big. How do I edit it Dave Got it. click the link now to see.
  13. Not the best pic in the world I know but I just had to take this. http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/5312/gardenbirdscopy.jpg The Pheasants have been around for a while but would love to know where the Peacock came from. Dave
  14. Start > All Programs > Default Programs > Set Default programs > Select Internet Explorer (or Firefox etc, depending which browser you use) (highlight it) > Set This Program as Default > OK That fixed the little minx Newt. Thanks for replying. No ides why it went wrong in the first place Dave
  15. For some unknown reason I can no longer go from a link to a web site in an Email. All I get is a message saying, This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel. What the He## does that mean and how do I do it. Easy now folks with any help as I am a true technophobe and prefer roofing. Dave
  16. I am thinking I might have to go to Kew as well now as that is where the records are. Oh Well, worth a try. I know how you feel, my wife has gone back generations and her family all seemed to stay in the Hereford /Worcester area as farmers. Dave
  17. Sounds strange I know but all I know of my father is his date of birth and possibly place. I am under the impression his father could have been of Polish extraction but his mother was from South Wales ( Barry ) Don`t know her maiden name either. Dave
  18. I am trying to do my family tree but it turns out that my father changed his name by deed poll many moons ago. My problem is that I have no record of his name before the change and no family members left to turn to to try and find out Do any forum members have any idea of where to go next without a trip to London and looking through records. I do know that it was not a legal obligation have have the name change registered. Help please. Dave
  19. A couple from North Cornwall this year. Dave
  20. I saw him doing a bit of building work in Port Isaac this year. Great rock fishing there Magi. Dave
  21. Probably just an over amorous male. Had on in our garden but not quite as bad. Dave
  22. Off to the above this week end for 3 yes 3 weeks, Dahouet to be precise and need to know what the Sea Fishing is like over there. Also any Fly Fishing in the vicinity. I have found the guided parts about Fly Fishing but want really to just wander and fish if possible, or have a look at some still waters. Might even have to have a go at chuching a fly in the briny as it is on the door step virtually to where we are staying. Any help/advice would be much appreciated. Dave
  23. Cheers Colin, but apparently it is a fault with the P.C. set up. I have a Sony VAio with built in cam. it is set up for default capturing pictures not Bluetooth, (so I have read) I have found a fix on the Skype forum but not really being into I.T. it could take reading a few times to find out what I have read. I may get there one day. Cheers Dave
  24. Downloaded this Programme for Video Calls but it will not show the video. It says " Video source isn`t delivering the stream in the correct format " Anyone got any ideas how to fix this, in words of one syllable please, I am a roofer not an I.T. expert. Dave
