Crew at last!

Did Edward get the lion's share?E&V with Ocean Rainbow in the backgroundIt’s wonderful to have E&V on board and we are thoroughly enjoying their company although not too sure that James is quite so happy about his share of the uncooked fruitcake mix!   So far no fish however Edward did catch a crab but we decided to put it back in the water as it wouldn’t feed four.      After spending a couple of days in Grande Anse including a walk over ‘Champagne mountain’ to Petite Anse we moved on to Sainte Anne.   We are now enjoying the azure coloured waters and sheltering from some pretty stiff winds!   We’re definitely enjoying being in ‘holiday mode’.

    Hi – Sorry for the lack of messages recently but we’ve been busy with builders doing our snagging for the last 8 weeks (they’re doing all 15 houses on the development together and its taking forever) Noticed your lack of fish caught and I spoke to Sarah’s new man Mike as he is an avid fisherman and makes bespoke rods. He said for open water fishing you need a bigger lure than the yellow one in the photo posted when crossing the Atlantic and it would also help if it did not bend in the middle. He drew me a picture – the first bit of line from the rod to the swivel should be able to take 20kg and the second bit of line from the swivel to the lure should be about 2-3 metres in length and should be able to take 60 kg. Hope that makes sense – it is complete double dutch to me as I have never been fishing in my life!!!! Best of luck!! Love to you all including E & V
