With the spring weather returning the in form of strong winds and showers it was time to beat a hasty retreat to some sheltered freshwater ponds. Just an excuse to get out for a couple of casts.

I really cannot get over how good the weather is at the moment. Galway is getting weather that would not disappoint during the summer, never mind the spring! Long may it last.

The last trip out couldn’t see me find any fish and the trip out the other day saw me confined to sheltered ponds. Today was another glorious spring day in Galway and I wanted to spend some of it on the bay.

Wind forecasts of thirty knots kept me off the sea this afternoon and I decided to have a look at some small lakes closer to ‘home’. Well sheltered, they are a safe bet in windy weather.

The last week was a real treat in terms of the glorious weather that smiled down upon us. It’s rare that we get a dose of summer weather in April in Ireland, never mind Galway!

I was still seeking rougher weather to test the new Thresher 155 from Wilderness Systems. Conditions were delivered yesterday in spades and repeated today with 25 knot onshore winds.

The rougher weather never rolled in this afternoon. I had hoped that the day would get a little wild and provide some good testing conditions for the Thresher 155.

It has been over a month since I have been on the water. It has been a long month. Personal and family issues needed tending to so the fishing had to wait for a while. Today I was back!

Saturday was a beautiful day but to avoid a Valentine’s Day massacre I stalled the fishing plans for the weekend until Sunday. Saturday would have been a lot drier.

I am eagerly awaiting the lengthening days. It seems that since Christmas my fishing time has been limited. I did manage to get out on Sunday though…….
