Hello everyone.
Well, after four years of ill health, countless hospital appointments, physio, counselling etc. I am finally on the mend. To celebrate, I've bought myself a fly fishing set up to have a bash at carp on my local water. I've course fished for years but have always wanted to have a bash at this, so now's the time

I also spend a lot of holiday time up in the NW of Scotland. I know the mountains, hills, roads and moors like the back of my hand, but know nothing about the fishing up there. So, new beginnings in life, time for a new challenge as well. I am to become a fly fisherman. starting with course fish

what do I need to know then?
er...everything. I hope I've come to the right place!
