    sketch-1510592158752.png Went out after work last Tuesday & only got this little one up, 24" also had a couple of bites that didn't stick! Went out yesterday morning +2 Celsius, first mistake was I took the wrong reel with 9wt line instead of 10wt, but it still works, tried it before! Second mistake was I thought I don't need my neoprene gloves cos' i won't be out long & this line doesn't bring up a heap of water stripping like the Rio line! Was on the water 1.5hrs & only had 1 bite, feet & fingers were freezing! Went out after work today & remembered to take the right reel in the morning, was on the sea for 1.5hrs again but with neoprene gloves this time, only 1 bite! +1 Celsius, feet & fingers were freezing again when i called it quits! Might go try catch a couple whitefish after work on Thursday? Take the float tube out again Friday!?!
