Well we haven’t really done a whole lot of anything remotely sea fishing or walking related this week as we’ve been busy doing house / garage maintenance. I’ll never, ever fit another door in my life, it felt like we must have planned, chiseled or routed the damn thing hundreds of times before finally getting it to fit and then every time it looked like there was a suitable break in the weather to remove the old one permanently the heavens would open and it would chuck it down.
But it’s done now, locks in place and painted white (although it does need another coat but I’m DIY’d out at the moment)
A somewhat more successful enterprise involved our first plant purchase for the rear garden,a Crookstem Bamboo (Phyllostachys aureosulcata ‘Aureocaulis’) and a Golden Bamboo (Phyllostachys Aurea) both puchased from a very knowledgable, local specialist, bamboo4u.co.uk.
These bamboos have been ( and still are I believe) used to make fishing poles in China where they are native but I’ll think I’ll be sticking to Carbon Fiber and Fiber Glass for mine. We’ve dug in lots of compost and feed so I hope they’ll do OK, just need one more to go between them now that we’ve seen how much space they take up.
Fishing wise I’m hoping to fish a match at Fairhaven, Lytham, next Sunday with some friends from Blackpool but the weather forecast doesn’t look so clever at the moment so I guess it’ll be a bit last minute as to whether we go or not.
