    Quality Roach And Perch

    Water crystal clear at the moment. had first blank for a long while this week on Wroxham Broad. Someone fished the main river and also blanked. Back of Salhouse Broad on main river worth a hit though. Have always caught well here but not been there for 3 weeks. Looks like fish are moving into boatyards.

    The Sub £300.00 4hp Outboard...

    That's interesting Robin,cannot go wrong at that price. No different to the old aircooled sea bee. this one is 4t so no fuel mixing. Had a sea bee as a standby on a 18ft Shetland once and it pushed along ok when needed.

    Fishing Season

    I think he is correct about this. I seem to remember that you can fish with a lure out of season. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. Had a terrific season last year on bread On a countdown now to the 16th.

    Buying A Boat (again!)

    The boat you saw sold might have had underlying problems and the owner may have been desperate to sell.I have often seen the same model boat cheaper but when you start having a good look round you often find the dearer one the better.Is the boat with a broker or private sale as some private sellers are dreamers when it comes to valuing their boat.

    Salhouse Cafe Dispute.

    I think the Councillors who issued the notice should be made to pay the compensation not us council tax payers.Should never have gone that far in the first place. I hope the national media report this so the owners name is cleared.
