Flying out tonight

Just clearing emails and stuff before I head off to Heathrow for my flight down to Tanzania. All packed and ready to go I think. Passport, malaria pills, iPod, plus lots and lots of camera gear !! I have not been able to put any photos up here recently, so here are a few tigerfish shots from when I was in Zambia a few years ago - my aim is always to come away with stronger photos each and every time I get the cameras out.......

You may remember that I spoke about the opening day over in St. Merryn for the new tackle shop The Art of Fishing - Ben says it went really well and that Toby Harnett from Plymouth was the lucky winner of the raffle - see below. He came away with one of the new 8' lure rods from Anyfish Anywhere, a Quantum spinning reel, plus a bunch of shiny new bass lures from the Plus Fishing guys. I bet Toby is rather glad he entered that one !!

Anyway, best head off now. I am pretty sure I don't get any internet access where I am going, so unless you see otherwise I will post again at the back end of next week when I am back in the UK - and hopefully with a phone line and internet connection at the new house !!!! Smash a few fish for me while I am gone, I reckon the unsettled weather and these big tides might well throw up some nice fish........
