I enjoyed a brilliant day today with Kevin Cronin, polar explorer and sailor – we went south out of the influence of the persistent north easterlies

Kevin and the other brave Polar team adventurers can be seen here

Sunshine, ‘secret’ locations and blue skies lead us to fish today in the improving conditions. God knows its been difficult enough for the past few days and now with a bit of luck it might hold over this set, but I’m not holding out too much hope regarding the weather.

Fly and lure fishing were the order of the day and its Kevin’s first bass he’s caught in more than forty years – it was worth the wait and now a long fishing summer and autumn lies ahead for him to enjoy.

Thanks for making it easy.
