    Well another Saturday and another strong wind from the south or south west.Anyway I head down to one of my favourite beaches at West Lakes .Parked the car and headed to the start of the beach.
    And first cast POP a tiny bream was jumping at my fly.This happened a couple of times and then nothing .So by this time I had waded back to my car.And I thought a quick change of fly ,as the one I was using had never produced a fish .
    So on with another popper and I'm off.The wind wasn't the hassle I had thought.It created water movement .The biggest hassle was the ARMADA OF SKULL BOATS that were training on the lake today.
    About an hour in and a good length of beach waded .I had a hit and miss then BAM
    and a bad shot of the fly

    A quick couple of snaps and he back in the water went this little 19cm Bream and I would say a minute after I was back in the water Bam again


    I continued on my way after this did have a giant jump that missed the fly .And a couple more small fish that didnt take the fly properly but by 8.45 am the fish had all gone home.
    And by the time I left at 9.20am I spent about 2 1/2 hours chasing them
