The halfway house, Pitney, Somerset. Best pub in England?

Halfway house for dinner last night. Beer - superb. Food fantastic as ever. I've been all over the world and eaten a lot of chips. Nowhere do the chips come close to the chips here.

My best pike. 21lb. Late July 2010

Here's the story of the biggest pike I ever caught.   Probably my best angling achievement because it was proper skill and a fitting pay off for thinking angling.

Restaurant Review: On the Hill - Ruthin

My new favourite restaurant
I've been working away a lot in the last few weeks and no fishing has been happening.  As well as fishing I also enjoy eating a lot.  True in both interpretations of the sentence.  So, to further the diversity of D.Heaps Fishing Adventures blog, here is a restaurant review.

On the Hill
One experience which many people find uncomfortable is eating alone in a restaurant.  I would say that I used to but I have to do it so often when I am working away from home that it does not upset me anymore.  Indeed, it can be a very pleasant experience as just happened to me while working in Ruthin, Denbighshire.

Top Tips. #1 Bait...

Maggots. The number one bait.
When you are planning on going fishing on Sunday remember to check to see if the maggots you left in the fridge have turned on Saturday and buy more, if required, while the tackle shop is open.

My planned trip to the canal on Sunday was ruined by a failure to do this.  I didn't go.  hence the lack of posts in this blog since the river season finished.
