We arrived stopped for a bite to eat on the way , and arrived at Dunvegan campsite. We got out tents set up , with a bit of difficulty, and brewed up a coffee before heading out fishing. As the light easterly wind looked favourable we headed for Skyes most western point famous for its fishing and whale watching opportunities called Neist point.
We arrived at the mark just an hour or so after low tide, so the plan was to fish it up to high tide , or until it got dark as it was beautiful warm day with the sun shining.
We headed out the front to the rocks to the left of the lighthouse armed with the fly gear . And Brian hooked a coalfish on his first cast.
It was almost a fish a cast and in almost consecutive casts i completed the grand slam of a coalie,then a mackerel then a small pollack , if i had a bit foresight i would have kept the mackerel for bait , but i was confident we would not struggle to catch them at other marks, i was wrong as it was the only one of the weekend !
Brian finally managed a decent pollack out the front on his chartreuse/white clouser but most of the fare was with the coalies and a family group fishing feathers along side us were pulling them in groups of 3 and 4 .

It had been a good days fishing , difficult at times to locate quality fish particularly out the front perhaps it was the bright weather ?
After that we took the steep walk back to the car then returned to the campsite cooked up some sausages a couple of beers then went to get some sleep for day 2.
