Hot Feet

Hot Feet.

"It’s always the same, they build these stages far to long. We have to walk  from the shallow end just to get in the water. However, on warm sunny days the surface gets hot and it burns your feet. So you have to hop and keep changing feet. Now it  may be ok for humans wearing those plastic beach shoes but we need decent carpet."

"Ah well I suppose we’re nearly there and then we can jump in the water to cool off. I hope that water isn’t to cold."

Welcome To The Beach Party

Welcome to the Beach Party.

Come on guys the beach is empty. the tourists have all gone and the Canadian Geese have moved so there’s no goose droppings. Messy creatures.

That water looks good but it sure is cold on the "bum",  we can sit on the warm sand.

An Unexpected Landing

Note And Photo From:- Kelowna Trout Angler, Canada.

Carp fishing in the Okanagan.

The lilies in the background had been a magnet for the Carp and I had taken full advantage of the opportunity. Sitting on the shingle had been a pleasure as the evening sun went down.

Each tree had been used as a vantage point for an Osprey as it systematically checked every spot for an easy meal. Coots and various ducks had fought their  way across the weed beds in attempts to gain the best places to rest up and sample the free offerings from the weed.

A Coyote could be seen up in the vineyards and occasionally a Muskrat would raise it’s head to surprise the ducks.

But the surprised widlife was nothing compared to mine, when in the early morning I returned to find this strange bird of prey sitting in the very swim I had vacated only a few hours earlier.

It seems the propeller had snapped and the plane came down. Everyone was ok.

The Kingfisher

Note And Photo From:- Fred, Brighton, UK

We were fishing on the Wye and sport was very slow. We were catching nothing and it was our last day before returning home.

Then, this little chap came and sat on my rod.

He looked around surveying his territory and decided to stay and use the rod as a”diving board” to take fish from the shoals of Bleak that were in the swim.

Cheeky “git” caught a number of fish, using the rod as a perch, whilst I didn’t get a bite all day.

A bright little Perch to the fly…

Note And Photo From:- Kelowna Trout Angler

A great little fish to start the season. The sun shone and the water sparkled as I paddled around in the V-boat, with wonderful birds in the reeds, the odd Beaver raising it’s head and an Osprey diving for it’s supper. Great.
