  1. Been on holiday so missed this. Ant. Where you live pal just get on with it. Post as much as you want and I guarantee nobody will bother you. Just as an aside, we had our Phillos distilling sidiqui for us in Riyadh. Fckg stuff was totally insane. Double distilled from memory and when tested over a spoon, no orange flames at all so pretty much pure alcohol . Yep, that would eventually send you blind. Notice my spelling mistakes ffs. Will try to see you later in the year but no promises. LAK. Jok.

    1St time trout fishing tips

    Worm and maggot???? Who taught you anything about trout fishing.? That's poaching my friend. Trout need to be caught on the fly whether it be wet or dry, nymph or full bodied imitation, lure or otherwise. I think the only time you would use a worm is on a little stream or beck where it was impossible to present a fly. Only my humble opinion. I went this morning full of myself and to be honest caught nowt. This hot weather has sent them down, down, down. Anyway, good luck in your endeavours and as we say, 'Tight Lines'. Jok.

    Salmon or sea trout

    Bell. Out of curiosity , where do you go out from. The reason I ask is that I used to take my dive boat out from a number of places up there and met quite a few legends. Jok.

    Salmon or sea trout

    Bell. Strangely, the trout that we stock are blues. They have a beautiful coloured flesh and taste a lot different to standard rainbow. Allied to the addition of chilli, herbs and other accoutrements it makes for a fine dish. As we speak, I've completed the dishes of mousse and to be fair, it tastes lovely. Jok.

    Salmon or sea trout

    The pressed salmon with whisky is known as Gravadlax. (Spelling might be off). The Swedish do a hell of a lot as it is basically cured fish. I did it at home with rainbows and Browns and the results are quite impressive. Not difficult either. Just doing 2 smoked trout which will be turned into fish cakes and mousse. The guys love them. Jok.
  8. Oh by the way, that is beetroot boiling away on the stove. Might have a bit of that as well. Jok.
  9. Venison with onion and garlic Terry. Tell you now we eat well. It's grand ain't it. Jok.
  10. First lot of runner beans picked and shall be having them with dinner this evening. New spuds, Charlotte, carrots, broad beans, garlic, th3 runner beans and a home made pie. Absolutely the best. Jok.

    Byron. I should have added that this was from 1964 which in fairness is a long while and I didn't mention the dirt bikes and go c art that went in the mix. As I said, one hell of a ride. Rocker s we certainly were and proud of it. Jok.
  12. They are Sweet Potatoe plants. Hope you get a good crop. Everything is looking good too. We are eating like kings and enjoying it. Like yourself I have runner beans going well and we all know that when you start picking them the things go daft. Terry D. I took on another garden for my grand daughter and it 's going well. She is genuinely interested and wants me to get her school interested. Looming retirement is starting to look busy. Jok.

    Yes pal but to be honest he does not age. Look at him now and when he did the TT you'd hardly believe he's aged. Leon is a hell of a nice guy as well. To be honest all the guys are mint and one of my good friends, Peter Hickman, and his mum and dad, are great pals. The whole paddock, including Guy are the best. Jok.

    Just to say that I am no stranger to speed. For my 60th birthday, I was gifted a track day at Donnington. One To One instructor and allowed flat out, no restrictions. Absolutely brilliant but when we got back I was asked to keep my leathers on and taken to the paddock garages. Within a couple of minutes a bike was heard roaring down and there was Rocket Ron Haslam on one of his race bikes. Hop on son and happy birthday. He advised me to hang on with my knees and clench tightly if and when I'd had enough. Well, 4 laps and believe you me I'd had enough. I'm a big bloke and Ron certainly is not. We did the laps mainly on the back wheel and to be honest, going round the hairpin was fckg amazing. I think we did the max coming down to Redgate corner which was brilliant. Going through Craner was awesome as I'd done it a half our earlier with my instructor . Happy days. Jok.

    Got the Honda Blackbird 1998 carb model. The last Real outing was to the BSB round in Assen and managed 172mph on the bridge road back. My brother Ian. RIP! Managed 155mph on his Pan European and our other friend did 130mph on a CBR 1000. I have just sold the Blackbird but will remember it and am still astounded by it's ability.

  20. All year round cauliflower and cabbage. Leeks but it's close to a bit late, get your ground cultivated ready for late, Nov/Dec garlic setting. Leeks , if you can get plants might be a good bet. All the climbing beans are still worth a go. Salads are obviously ongoing so get some more in. Onion sets might be worth a shout. At the worst, you risk nowt so get them in. Jok.
  21. I remember an old guy saying that if new potatoes were bigger than pigeon eggs then they were'nt new potatoes. Well, to be fair yours are. I'm guessing that you put the garlic in late last year so good crop. Everything else as normal. Good harvest and happy eating. Jok.

    Trout

    Well you guys, that was a bust. Never had to do anything like it, ever. Was having trouble in that the last three outings I had not even a pull, so, listening to the members, I have done something never done by me before. Fast sinking line. Now not only was that a newbie but watching my line coming back at me nearly vertical certainly was. I worked out that I had 127 feet of line and leader which I was leaving for 90 seconds on the watch before a really steady retrieve. The things nailed the fly and within 20 mins had my bag limit. Thing is that pulling them from so far down made me think about Nessie. These guys fought like mad and at only 2/3 lbs gave a good account of themselves. Our fishery is an old brick pit, fairly large surface area at about 3 acres plus, and we stock 5 times annually from 1.1/2 to 10 lbs mostly rainbows but quite a few blues and Browns. The last few weeks, with the heat have been quite a challenge. Next time I'll get some pics. Jok.

  24. Well son it's made me think. I get a lot of trout and why not turn it into fertiliser. Terry D, what's your thoughts? Jok.
