Yea man, Trout fishing in Bandon !

April 30th, 2012 | by

25/04/12 Well after a very dry start to the season and the water on the Bandon River being very low we have finally had some good rain. This has increased water level. The brown trout are feeding well. There was a great hatch of iron blue dun on the river today with trout feeding non stop on the surface. The swallows were joining in on the feeding session, scooping the water surface of fly. Spring is in full bloom and all manner of wild life is alive and kicking on the banks of the river. Tree’s and river side vegetation growing a wealth of green foliage…. Oh how its good to be alive and appreciate the goodness of the natural world and be one with nature on the river journey.

27/04/12 I finally watched the long awaited movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and wasn’t disappointed. The Shiek who is something of a visionary wants to make his dream a reality by building a river in the desert and stocking it with salmon where everyone can fish together! Its a completely wild and whacky idea. Along the course of the story a series of intriguing twists and turns happen and the idea becomes a 50million pound sterling project! The film draws together an interesting story of romance, dreams coming true, change, desruction and humanity.

One of my favourites lines from the movie: “Faith is the cure that heals all troubles. Without faith there is no hope and no love. Faith comes before hope, and before love.” (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Zaidi bani Tihama).

What are you waiting for, go to the cinema and watch it!
