Hello and goodbye… or maybe not quite yet!



Yes, I know, it’s been a while (understatement of the year) but yes, I’m still alive. I also know that my blog has been cut off with scissors at a certain point. For that, I want to apologize. Sometimes life makes a strange turn… but no, I won’t get into that. The past is the past, and today is today.
 
And today I want to tell you a story:
A while ago, two fly fishing friends (Koen Vandendriessche and Anthony Carpels) had some problems finding the materials they wanted to use to tie their predator flies. So they started looking for the stuff themselves. Of course that didn’t pass unnoticed to friends and fellow fly fishermen, so about a year later their efforts resulted in an online web shop and a brand new store in the little town of Oostrozebeke (Belgium). By that time it all consumed a lot of time (which they didn’t have) so Stefaan Demiddele (aka ‘the lonesome piker’) joined the team.
So that’s where we are right now, three fly fishing friends who are selling the exact same stuff they are fishing with themselves. And that last part, the fishing (and tying flies) we would like to share on a blog and get to know more people with the same interests.
So, let’s get on with it…”

This is actually the first post on a brand new blog. You can find it at 


www.predatorflyfishingbloggers.wordpress.com
 
There is not much on it yet (it went online a couple of days ago), but that will change soon enough. The pike season has started (in theory anyway), and we are very eager to get out there and tell you all about it.
But yes, that means that this blog has come to an end. I want to thank everybody for your interest and kind responses. And if you’re still curious in what I’m doing, you know what to do (hint: click on that white bunch of words, just a few lines back, or on the picture).
