Changing Times

Hi all.

It’s been some time since I’ve done any blogging… There have been so many changes in my life the past 9 months, and I’ve had little time to write or fish.

I was made an offer I could not refuse (sounds like a 1930’s Chicago gangster offer doesn’t it) and I am heavily involved with this new work opportunity. There were all the things to do as well; red tape, work visas for Jen and me, sell the house, the vehicles and the furniture, say good-bye to friends and neighbours… Anyone who has emigrated will know what I mean.

I am no longer in Mossel Bay, or even in South Africa any longer, and this blog is mosselbaai – not very appropriate any longer. I haven’t yet decided what I will do with it, whether I will keep it or not. I don’t see myself having much time in the near future to maintain and write new posts however.

I have asked contributors to move any articles they kindly allowed me to use for this blog to their own blogs if possible… Should I delete the blog, it would be a pity for the readers to lose some of the useful fishing information they contain…

Thank you all for following me these past couple of years – it’s been a lot of fun

The engineer who inspected the old one decided it needed more work than could be done on site in the time permitted, as the plant wanted it back online as soon as possible. So out with the faulty unit, and the replacement boiler installed.  Read the rest of this entry »
