Its been awhile since Ive posted on my blog, the main reason for this is because Ive also started using Facebook. I didn't think I'd ever use facebook but used in a certain way there is lots of interesting stuff on there. I've always hated it because i didn't want people hassling me on it that Ive known in the past, I'm not one for being bothered about people that are no longer in my life, i live for the next day and that's it. The other thing i didn't like about facebook was people talking a load of crud that didn't interest me, like 'joe blogs has just eaten a packet of cheese and onion crisps' Or 'betty boo is sat watching TV tired after a long day at work' SERIOUSLY? There are people out there that really want to know about that chuff?

Anyway as i was saying that has always put me off facebook, so i took the plunge and joined but didn't join as my actual name, that will prevent people in my past hassling me and telling me what they've just eaten. Its purely for fishing interest so i only Friend people that share the interest.
Facebook lets me keep in contact with fishing mates and join fishing related groups, it also lets me do quicker posts than i can with my blog and its generally more interactive. I'm not going to give up on my blog but will probably just keep it to a monthly post, more of a round up of what Ive been doing. If anyone enjoys what i do on my blog and want to follow what i do in more depth on facebook you can find me under the name 'MAtt Seventyninejh Fish Fooler' or click the link if it works.

So what have I been up to? Basically I have developed a massive obsession to pike fly fishing, its all i want to do at the minute, Ive been catching loads of fish, way above average for what i would usually catch on the venues I've fished. I almost feel guilty for letting my lure rods gather dust.
Here's a few photos of some fly caught fish from recent sessions..


  1. They are so lovely. I wanna buy one of those. I'm going to look for more fly fishing lures.
