Different Days

I managed to sneak away from work an hour early on Friday and was soon at the salt for the correct state of the tide. The wind was blowing hard on this side of the peninsula and the waves were fair crashing across the wee…

Speculative casts

There is a bay that I know which I sometimes drive past. I decided that this might be a good place to go for a speculative cast. I took a note of the what state the tide was at and was there sharpish after getting…

Out and about!

The plan was to use some of my new flies down in the salt for Sea Trout. This is mainly because due to the current restrictions I am unable to get to any actual rivers to cast a fly. As much as there are  many…

No fish all year!

Last night I realised that I had not actually caught a fish all year. You read that correct = all f*cking year! We are a day away from June and I was damn near on my longest blank of the last 25 years. This is…

Highland Blanks

Headed past the fault line being chased by the weather. First option was washed out and in a field so continued on. Finally settled with the beach casters – we tried to buy some extra bait in a supermarket but never found any! We thought…
