Mike,
What a great idea to post the photographs at the end of each day - now my wife knows what I have been getting up to! Do you mind if I send a copy to Mick Bell of Bloke Fly rods? I have enjoyed my 3 days over the last 2 weeks but unfortunately all good things must come to an end and work looms large!
See you soon hopefully.
