    Having a test hoon with a Radian 6 wt.

    This one being the biggest. Plus I landed a 1lb bow that I popped back.

    All on Copper John's or Royal wulfs.

    In some wind that was in cooperative to say the least at times and some rather technical casting being required.

    Think I'm sold on a radian now ;-)

    Classic.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Was running early the other morning. First cast bounced the Tassie off one of the piles, breaking a wing off. Started swimming like a demented wounded something. Nek minit, snagged on something.

    Couldn’t be further away if you tried. Caught in the canals, and never tasted salt.

    First trout on my new Epic 690C (built it from a kit). 2.2lb rainbow on a cicada imitation. One of two landed for half a day on the river - fishing wasn't wild but very happy with how the new rod performs.

    Last minute plan to fish a new river I had wanted to fish for a while. I planned to pick up a mate at 5am to get a early start but I slept in so started off poorly.
    All was saved though, with the first fish in the confluence straight off the bat. We were on for a good day. I was nymphing and my mate was running a cicada. This proved to be a good duo as I could fish deeper and he could work the more delicate areas with the dry. All up I think we landed about a dozen fish both browns and rainbows. They were angry fish when caught, jumping a lot and not giving up in a hurry making for some real exciting fishing.

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.
