Friday night flounder bash

Today after work  i quickly got some gear together for a wee bash at the flounders,  two or three breakaway leads and a couple of traces in my jacket pocket, some Mackie for bait and i was ready to go. My son  Jamie came along too and by half past four in the afternoon we were on the beach setting up.

 Plauged by weed and no bites for the first hour, the doubts were creeping in, then a  tap on the rod tip resulted in a nice flounder around the pound mark to boost my confidence and keep Jamies interest for a wee while at least! we kept this one for the table.

another few flounders followed before we packed it in at seven, happy but ready for dinner! 

this summers sea angling adventure has been so much fun but  I'm feeling the need to cast a fly rod again, hopefully this weekend on one of my favourite trout streams if the weather plays ball that is.
