Great day today in tough conditions. Had the pleasure of meeting up with Masaaki Fukuoka from Japan. ‘Masa’ is over in the UK improving his English language skills, and being a hardcore lure angler is getting out fishing at any spare moment. He’s catching some sweet fish too. Check out his blog >

I had the pleasure of showing Masa my local stretch of the Kennet & Avon. Hopefully the first of many trips. We’re hoping my English rubs off on Masa and his casting skills rub off on me! #madskills
