Upper Dam Falls

Back to it today in a spot I havnt been to for a while. Big floods recently so it was all churned and changed. Good day even with a dark morning start!

Happy New Year all...

Bought a small sluice for fines and am working through all my old heavies from previous trips.... very satisfying. I’m lucky enough to have a small creek outside my house.

Granite Post Falls

First day of 2020 back at the stream... Well happy with the result.

A nice bit of self isolation. Stay safe everyone.

1st November - Coin Bank

Somewhere totally new... totally apprehensive... and it rained... persistence really does pay off though 🙂 A late start to the season and now trying to pack the trips in before the snow comes....

Ive named it coin bank because a coin turned up in the sluice!

9th November - Sihl #1

Normally I go to a creek an hours drive away... today I thought I’d try my local river... 10 minutes drive away... 30 minutes of sluicinng revealed its worth pursuing! Am so happy... an evening of sluicing is a real opportunity now... very happy
