 Back Problems  

Unfortunately, I have been having some problems with my back this year so I won't be doing any competitive match fishing. I need to get up and walk around regularly, and that's not good when your trying to win a match. I think my team match fishing days may be over. 

As long as I can still go fishing now and again, that's good. 

I hope you all have a great fishing year.

 England Trip 2017  

Our England trip this year was not so good as I was suffering from a bad back and neck - it was causing me a considerable amount of pain so I did not fish well. I still managed 10 lb on the Norbury Junction stretch with a few Roach & Gudgeon, and loads of big Perch. 

I like fishing the shallow English canals - something completely different from fishing in The Netherlands, with only 30-60 cm depth on the far bank at 12 metres. I think Roger and Theo enjoyed the fishing too.

I enjoy my annual trip to England and will be going again next year.
