this bloody wind

 dont know about anyone else but i cant remember the wind being this relentless fo so long. i know summer you would get the freo doc sometimes quite early but it seems to be here almost non stop. 

last couple of times we got out we ended up comming back in a lot earlier as the wind picked up well before it was forecast. have many been getting out and finding the same.

 No different to last summer, actually I'd say slightly better as we didn't even drop the boat in last Xmas break. It's doable on a low swell, just a bit more hard work.

 Rotto end of next week, it'll need to be NW 30+ to stop us, anything else and eat my dust!

If you get cold

 If you get cold out fishing, a neighbour of mine sells these great fishing hoodies. Even seen Jamie Cripps from WCE wearing them on instagram. I use them when it's windy or really hot (or both). They're really lightweight and comfortable.
