Great to have you back

Its fantastic to have people who just get how to have a Fishing Holiday in the Florida Keys I am lucky to have back again Paul and Carol who are one of those groups who do.  No all important wish list, no it must be huge, no it must be perfect weather just great to be fishing and we catch what we catch.  As I have said before when you loose the enjoyment of catching small fish you have lost a big part of fishing and when you try to hard the harder it becomes.  Just look at the photo of Carol with a puffer fish no long screaming runs just a cute fish of the Florida Keys and a big smile on Carol’s face.  However as often happens with people who are not trying to hard that big fish come and Paul and Carol have only been fishing for two days but have had fish over 100 lbs each day.  Even I have to say yesterday was not very nice at sea strong winds, big waves, cold  ( well for the Keys low 70’s ) and wet rained most of the day but top marks for Paul and Carol who stuck it out till dark and had some fantastic fish.  Grouper over 100 lbs,  spinner, blacktip and lemon shark and top draw mackerel fishing poor Carol even getting spooled by a unstoppable fish on a 20 lb rod my guess a big king mackerel.  So we might have been the only boat out there but a great days fishing such is the joy of the Florida Keys.

Most people on one of our holidays will take back the memory of a special fish or fishes but I know it is not this that Paul and Carol will take back this time but they both had a flight of a life time at our local airport.  This week has seen an American historic flight group here offering flights in a second world war B 17 flying fortress and both Paul and Carol thought that this was such a rare chance they just had to go.  What did blow them away once the plane was in the air the 10 passengers were free to move and could walk over the bomb bay sit in the gun turrets and go right behind the two pilots just awesome.  What is even better the guys were more than happy for me to film the flight putting my Garmin Virb Elite on the tail watch the video and you will see people go right to the gun window to take photos.  Just total respect to the young men some under 20 who flew these planes in combat just hard to get your head round what they did.
