Counting Down

A week today and the season starts. Looking at the Lough this morning I'm just hoping we get the same weather for next week. Gentle ripple with a soft Westerly wind - lovely. It's pretty mild as well so with a bit of luck not too many  layers will be needed. I expect now that I have said this it will be really wild, Northerly gales and 20 layers will be needed before you'll even step outdoors. Well what ever we get we'll be up for it. We have been looking forward to opening day at the Fishing Lodge since the 1st of October and everything is ready for the new season. Engines serviced, boats scrubbed, bring it on! 
All round the lake the various fishing clubs are having their AGM's and we went to Ballindiff anglers meeting last night. Good to catch up with friends and share their anticipation of the fishing to come. During the meeting emphasis was put on boat safety including the importance of wearing life jackets correctly including crutch straps. At Lough Corrib Fly Fishing safety is paramount so checks will be done and re done on all things connected to safety.
Before the outdoor games begin there are a few indoor ones that need finishing ready for our first guests so best get on.
Paul and I would like to wish everyone a great fishing season and look forward to meeting up soon.........
