Diary

This diary sections shows what we get up to, sometimes in the business but often around and about.  As I go fishing on every chance I get, I thought you might like to see what I catch in each place, tactics and bait used.  You will soon realise that I am not a sophisticated angler and anybody can do what I do (most people probably better)

Last year we visited Madeira and took a ferry to Porto Santo for a couple of days. We had a lovely time on an interesting and relatively underdeveloped island and so returned this year for a package holiday at Pestana Porto Santo.
