Hi Folks,

After 3 years of blogging I have decided to take a break from the keyboard. There seem to be a million other things going on at present demanding my attention, so the time I usually spend on this blog could be allocated to other uses. I’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who has taken the time to visit the site and read about my angling exploits here in Ireland. Many of you have taken the trouble to get in touch and I have enjoyed communicating with each of you. If any of you want to get in touch with me my personal email address is

I have set up a new Facebook page for claretbumbler and will add any news there so you can keep up with my angling exploits.


Best regards,

  1. sorry to see end of blog but have followed you on facebook already, its an easier platform i guess upload short info and pics etc


  2. Hi Declan, Yes, I can pop a few lines and some photos up on FB way easier than on the blog. Thanks for following. Let’s hope the current crisis abates soon and we can resume fishing. Stay safe, Colin


  3. Sorry to see you’re calling it quits. I’ll miss the reading. I know myself that it gets quite time consuming (I’ve been MIA here for the last 3 years). Might get back to it this year you never know 🙂


    1. Hi Richard, I felt the blog had become a bit ‘stale’ so I am taking a break for a while. The fishing has been very poor these past few seasons and that has helped to make the decision. Hope you are keeping well in these difficult days. Best regards, Colin
