    Well being given the word that the Salmon Trout are about in the Port River .Off I headed to a spot in my back yard .That lasted all of 1/2 hour .No fish seen .No fish attacking my fly .So I thought off to the lake I go .
    Arrived at one beach and in five minutes I had lost and had hits from more Small Bream than you can imagine .
    But they soon ended .So seeing that the water surface was getting really disturbed on the far side of the lake .Off I drove again .
    Now this is where the fun starts .Upon starting at this beach of I cast and my drag knob thingee falls off into the water .Lucky its plastic :oops: .
    And next cast bang I'm on a nice little 20cm Bream.But problem number two the camera stuffed up got it working again and here's a couple of shots
    Fish returned to the lake and I'm off and this time problem number three bottom of my ancient nikes falls off well gets stuck in the sand :oops: .
    Off I go a bit like a woman in high heels and feeling every stone rock etc through the soul of my right foot.
    Anyway I cast at a sandy bottom between some seaweed .And these small Bream go bam bam bam all missing .Suddenly I'm on with what feels a much bigger Bream.I realise Problem number 4 fly line caught around the butt of the fly rod.Which really helped set the hook funny enough.A couple of small runs latter and a slightly bigger 23cm Bream is landed .

    I continued along the beach I had a fair few small bream leap and jump all missed the fly .
    So I decided to head home limping on my right foot as I felt every stone and rock through the canvas soul .
    The search for that 30cm bream continues
