So this is my house, just outside Wheathampstead, a village about 5 miles north of St Albans in Hertfordshire, UK. 



We just had a load of conifer hedging removed from the sides of the drive today, so you can see the house from the road now!  Had it done just so I could post an image on the forum....!  Yeah, right!  ;)

Thank you everyone, Good Morning Rob,

The Bay is ok for the bread & butter fish, herring, whiting etc occasionally a school of salmon or tailor come through but much a lot of the metro waters here  has been hammered for such a long time that anglers are going out further & further. Recent Fisheries management changes have also made differences to the type & amount of fish caught which is a good thing IMO as some species would soon be threatened with extinction, you can blame that on the GPS.

We sold our 'big' 21' boat a couple of years back and made the decision to upgrade the get away vehicle & van so we can enjoy the fishing and lifestyle that still exists in the Northern part of our Country. We have never freezer filled, catch some to eat the rest all get released, just love the thrill of a fish taking the lure and the following fight, Clive would understand :-)

Ooops i am rambling on, should have made a seperate post LOL I still have things to sort outside & it's now raining ... oh well time for another morning coffee LOL
