New BloodKnot Magazine

I’ve missed the launching of it, but here it is anyway. Just click on the image.

I especially liked the article by Andy Buckley,
called ‘NZ & MONEY’.
I have a lot of respect for people with that kind of attitude!

And I was surprised and happy to see an article by Erin Block, called ‘The Frugal Fly Fisherwoman’.

I recently found her own blog, and I was immediately hooked. The way she is driven in all aspects of life (including fly-fishing) and most of all the way she is able to put it into words, just kept me reading. A lot of fly fishermen want to share their adventures (including me), but writing about it is something completely different.
Just check out her blog here and see (and read!) for yourself.

Quick update

I got home yesterday, for Mother’s Day and a fantastic concert in the evening by Karsu Dönmez. But tomorrow, I’m off to the Belgian Ardennes again.

Last Tuesday, my parents accompanied me to set up my new home for the next couple of months. No way that I could have accomplished this all by myself.

This is me and my dad, figuring out how to set up my new tent.


And little by little it all started to take shape.


So this is it, my new home and base camp for some wonderful fishing.


Even when I was not fishing, that chair was very hard to get out of. In fact, I’ve enjoyed every second of just sitting there (or reading and tying flies), the last week!


Fish and fishing stories, will be for a next post.

But I can already say that this mayfly is a real killer at the moment.

The camping owner has guarantied me that I will have an internet connection before the summer. That way, I will be able to update my blog daily again…

Ready to go

I’m fully packed and ready to go (in fact I’m a bit over packed) because, tomorrow, I’m off to the Belgian Ardennes again. This time it will be for a couple of weeks, although I’ll return home, now and then, for a couple of days (mother's day, a couple of concerts, laundry,…).
It’s possible that I’ll have an internet connection this time, but I’m not sure. So if you don’t hear from me in a while, that means I’m having a great time, and a lot to post when I get back…
