Month: August 2007

  • Oxwich Bay Beachcasting

    The birds were catching more fish than we were, but at least we could see we were in the right place. Is summer here at last?

  • Sea fishing

    Looks like the remains of a torture scene, doesn’t it? I had a bit of an accident with a hook. I got a treble from a large plug embedded deep in my finger, up to the bend, and the barb had grabbed the flesh rather tightly. It came out of my finger eventually after much…

  • Photos, photos, everywhere

    I’ve got photos all over the web. They’re on my website, on Jack’s website, on Flickr, and on Facebook. I’ve held back against Flickr and Facebook for a long time because of my desire to keep things simple and in one place, but Flickr is just so simple and cool for sharing with a limited…

    Fishing by the sea. Thinking?
