    ^ What a slur!

    That was unscheduled live action... much to my camera-girl daughter's disgust as she was made to wait for over an hour until I caught something.

    ^ It's amazing how bribery improves a kid's patience... she was rewarded by a trip to Svensons yesterday afternoon.

    It took many takes... every time I had a bite and the float went under, I'd run out and strike but the time taken meant I missed most bites and the filming stopped after a few seconds.

    I did lose a really big one which was a great shame... it would have been just like watching an episode of River Monsters.

    That's for another day... FISH ONNNN!

    I suspect the wave motion created by your running up the pier triggered a "Fuk lets run for the hills" response in the fish

    I assume that you're referring to the shaky state of the jetty rather than my weight!

    ^ Of course, i was observing a reason why you may have struggled to hook given teh parlous state of the pier

    My good friend Jeremy Wade popped round last week to start filming his new series, 'Pond Monsters'!


    He's good... and caught a fine pla nin.





    Lovely!

    Great catch! Need to work on the fish on! calls though, Jeremy makes it sound so much more like a life and death battle is about to take place

    Any net throwing techniques passed on?

    Your daughter is an excellent chef.

    ^ In actual fact it was the gardener who knocked up this chilli fish. He may not be much use in the garden but he's not a bad chef.

    It was way too 'pet' for me... the wife had the fish while I had a mini steak and kidney pie with mash and peas!

    My daughter is still at the 'chocolate chip cookies under supervision' stage.
