First Dutch Bream

Went float fishing today here in Breda. It is getting warm around 20 degrees today. This nice Bream had a go at my maggot and corn bread mix.

Perch flies

I have been making some perch flies recently. Going to check canals around Breda in next few days for big perch.

Chasing Pike

This is my new fishing ground around Breda. Blanked on particular day. Now my fly box is full of new pike patterns, fast sinking line for these deep waters and hopefully soon a meter in size pike will grace me with a fight.

Fly tying - first steps

Here are some of my awkward first trout flies I managed to tie.
A week ago I got my first fly tying vice.
Some of them I will take out tomorrow for a first plunge.

Piggy bye, bye

On Saturday we went to pick up our new pig and collect the finished pancetta from the previous one.
Pancetta was drying on air for three months, and the new one from this piggy is on its place drying as I write this. Prosciutto is due in November( long wait :()
It was a nice day out in the countryside with some friendly farmers and friends.

Sourdough bread

Over these winter holidays I was perfecting our sourdough starter and bread making procedure.
Now after roughly a month and a half I am quite pleased with results. Nice crackling crust and soft fluffy crumb. The two half a kilo loafs pictured here were spiced up with some poppy seeds. The smell and crackling sound of crust are very hard to resist while the bread is cooling.
