M-J is back from the Fly Fishing Championships...

...with a silver medal for Wales. Very Happy
Would have loved to have won gold - but the English team was an unstoppable force.
The Scottish team won the bronze.

Having fished in a boat every day from 9am to 5pm for the last week I'm shattered...and am still in my pyjamas today at 11am.
When I close my eyes I'm still rocking back and forth.
My face is brown from my nose down, but white above - it's a most peculiar look.

Back to work on Tuesday.

Thinking on, I'm quite glad I'm not a fish. I bet the judges were bamboozled by the clip-board manouevre.

You've missed a couple of good celeb. deaths, by the way: Jeff Conaway and Gil Scott-Heron.

Windy? That's an understatement, it was practically a Force 10 gale all day. Laughing
We'd had really good weather all week for all the practice days - but on the day of the competition the wind was howling across the water, horizontal rain and huge waves. You could hardly get a line out at times. I had a very wet bottom when I came in at 5pm. Even the super-duper waterproofs couldn't keep us dry in those conditions.

Rolling Eyes Hoping the official photos in uniform won't be too bad, although there were a number of comments from within the team that some of us look like men in drag in the tartan skirts...

Some of the girls would like plain black trousers (which I agree with) so I suggested that we cut up the skirts and make them into waistcoats instead, which everyone thought was a good idea. We just need a good seamstress to do them for us (paid of course).

Well done M-J. Very Happy

The waistcoat and black trousers sounds good compromise.

Jolly well done, M-J ! Very Happy Mary-Jane

Jolly well done, M-J ! Very Happy

Fanks very much Gil...and everyone.
I should point out I merely contributed as a member of the 14-strong Welsh team - I didn't get the silver all on my own Laughing
