2017 has been an interesting year with my fishing even though i didn’t pick up a fly rod its been quite a diverse fishing year from pike to LRF to Large mouth Bass, catching alligators on lures and making my own lures where do i start.
2017 hit of to a great start with a 19lb crock off the river. The Old line thru trout doing the business again unfortunately the next couple of months i didn’t manage to get much fishing done due to work commitments.
Even though i didn’t manage much fishing thru Feb/March/May the lure making was still going on behind the scenes micros and my pike lures and managing to catch plenty of fish on them. There has been a vast improvement in my lure building over the past 12 months and especially from when i originally started 3 years ago.
Late April to May i got back into my salt water fishing hitting the wrasse and the Lrf. Lrf fishing I caught species i didn’t even realise existed and species i new existed but never caught before. There is some crazy and beautiful little fish that live down in-between the rocks.
As we moved into the summer i did something i haven’t done for a while pick up a feeder rod and catch some bream then the rivers opened again back to doing something i really love catching chub on my own lures no monsters but plenty of them.
The End of the summer i went back to Florida catching a big Large mouth Bass was my target but it didn’t happen plenty of bass to be caught but no size to them i did manage to hook a few Gators though.
September through to December back doing the pike fishing. Fishing new venues and catching plenty of fish meeting new faces and making new friends.
Hopefully 2018 can be a varied as 2017 wishing you all a Happy new year “Tight Lines”.
