3RD “KSFF” Meet. POW Pier Dover. 30/03/2013

Well, I got down to the car park at dover for around nine and unpacked. On exiting the car park I chatted to another fisherman heading to the pier which turned out to be Selachian for KSFF. We headed down the pier, picked or spot around the red box and then went and located Snagger and co. who were at the café end of the pier.

We set up and the wind was blowing well and the snow was like big salt grains stinging the eye balls. First up not longer after the start was a whiting for Selachian, then one for me. Next a decent size flounder for Selachian, then a dab for me, then a flounder for me.


A few dabs here and pouting there was the flow for the rest of the day, al be it slowly. My fishing died off not long after a very quiet high tide. Selachian kept with the dabs and totalled 10 fish and me 5.

We were expecting a few more of the Kent forum to turn up but if the competition had gone ahead with tight liners, we think KSFF would have won the day.  Here is a lovely picture of the sky.


Nice to meet you Selachian, even if I got the handle wrong

Until the next time…

About Chris Ainger

I have been working in IT since 1998 in the Public Housing Sector. I have worked with Citrix since 2003 in the days of Citrix Metaframe XP 1.0 FR2. Since then I have been through the processes of upgrading to Presentation Server 4.0 with a farm of around 150 servers. Since then I have helped create a farm of around 200 servers using XenApp 6.0 on VMware 4.1. This was a great experience which has only increased during the upgrades of the environment for out 2000+ users. All of our clients are the WYSE 10 series using ThinOS which I have helped configure for individual users from a central location making administration very simple. I gained my CCA qualification in XenApp 6.0 in January 2012. I am a big fan of SolarWinds also, which is a great monitoring tool. It is very versatile with a small footprint of resource usage on the targeted devices. I am currently designing the interfaces for the IT department for daily use and also a Service view for the Support Desk Team. I am also a keen fisherman, having restarted again after 20 years. I set myself yearly targets to try to complete which makes this more interesting and belong to several forums of other like-minded folks. I, on occasion, fly fish for trout as a treat once in a while or when the fridge gets empty and also sea fly fish for bass and mullet. My main area is sea fishing from either beach, harbour wall or pier. There are so many species of fish to catch around the UK that you can mix up the locations to try something different.
