Welcome to the Out And About blog

29 March 2020 0 By Fred Carrie

I am writing this at the end of the first week of the UK lock-down caused by the Covid19 crisis.

For some time now I’ve been thinking about starting an outdoor orientated blog. Just an outlet for my musings on all things outdoors and somewhere to republish some long lost fishing articles I wrote years ago. Who knows, I might even write some new ones if we are ever allowed outside again. 🙂

Having become bored of forums with all their wearisome “experts”, politics and hostilities (for over 10 years I ran a very successful one) and the often tiresome banality of “social media”, I thought an old fashioned blog might be worth a try.

I have to admit that with the current health crisis the timing could have been better! On the other hand, looking over at my ½ full glass, perhaps it’s an opportunity to kick things off that I might not otherwise have had the time or the inclination to do.

So here it is, the first post!
