Well the trip to the River Wye didn't go as planned, we did get a couple of pike but the river was far too high. Roger and Paulos are still there and hopefully they'll get another session in before Paulos has to fly back to the States, as for me I'll be back towards the end of February - hopefully the river will be back in the banks by then.
Flooding is possible!
Edit (Friday): And my Mum has just sent me this photo of the Wye... Guess there's no fishing today!
I have found a project for the rapidly approaching closed season - get my old car (1963 MG Midget) back on the road - that should kill a month or two!
