    Been here a while, can remember the proboards forum.

    Think you're right, numbers on the Nith last year were poor [regardless of what the catch stats say when they're released]. I was out at night quite a few times last season as was a mate, I did write a few reports on the Nith thread, but to be honest how many times can you keep repeating "was out last night, seen and touched nowt", before it sounds boring?

    Me, I'm still here. I was on Hoppy's first forum, then when Gethyn took it over then Dafydd, now here...
    Few fish and terrible recent conditions have reduced the amount of participants on the sewin fora - lets see how next season goes.

    Crockski!

    ...now there’s a name to conjure with!

    watermole+ still tottering on here..just. Not so good getting around now but still managing to wet a (silk) fly line when I can.
    Oddly enough, I started sorting out the fly boxes and cast wallet yesterday and thought of you..

    Old “silverinvicta” (Bap...but only to my friends) sadly passed away last year at his home on the I.o.M. I still have Hoppy’s phone number and miraculously managed to speak to him..the first time in years.

    I fished a few times for sea trout last season, but caught only one, plus a few small brownies., but am going to try again this year, whilst I can still go..
    Have given up rod making, but still make a few reels..

    So nice to hear from you...and would very much like to get in touch with you all again...the old ties are still there..
