Hey chaps and chapettes,

Thought I'd share a few pics of my latest adventure taking a group into the mountains of Snowdonia here in Blighty.

Latest adventure 20150312
Caught contemplating the day's events.

Latest adventure 20150313
The overnight stop

Latest adventure 20150314
Managed to catch the solar eclipse on the side of a mountain by making a makeshift projector using my pipe tool as a punch.

Latest adventure 20150315
Last climb to the summit.

Apologies, for the life of me I can't work out how to rotate the images for the forum. I've rotated and saved prior to inserting and it hasn't made the slightest difference...

Looks a treat lad! Bit of a scramble though what? And that lake begs to be fished doesn't it!

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Nothing serious in the way of scrambling Rande, but enough to make you take your hands out of your pockets to add interest.

You know, I've fished that lake a couple of times with the fly and have studied it several times more for signs of fish. Nothing. No rises. Not a thing. It's in a high remote place, there's no visible stream into it and the outflow is through a moraine so you can't see it and can only just hear it. I therefore reckon it's one of those oddities where there is no trout. Shame really, as it's a cracking place to make shapes with a fly line.

Pity that, mate. Someone should petition the local authorities to stock it. Might encourage more folks to make the journey. Nowt like a fresh caught trout in the frying pan to cap off the day!
