Hi, Chicamundo/Rosie - Hertfordshire is lovely (when the sun's shining!) - Hitchin is about 15 miles from us. We're in AC over Christmas and New Year 2004 and hubby is starting to tie his flies now - the holiday can't come quick enough!! Thanks to everyone for all their help on this message - Anyone need anything to know about flyfishing in the UK and hubby will be pleased to answer.
