Carnoustie beach Flattie sesh

Its been probably as much as 30 years since i last fished for flat fish on Carnoustie beach. I recall as a boy digging lug off the beach and catching a few flatties.

On Monday I revisited that beach with my brother Lindsay.
 It proved to be a great venue for flatties with hectic sport , the calm sea made for great bite detection . we took many flounders some good ones too, and some small place.

i think this would make a graet venue for a bit of lrf flattie fishing, if the weather holds ill be back soon.

October saying goodbye for another season

Octobers been and gone and weather wise I recall it was pretty kind.

I managed my last trip to the Avon before the season ended on a beat  i used to fish on a regular basis many years ago , it was nice to revisit it . The water was really clear and it surrendered a few fish to dries and nymphs , great sport and i look forward to another trout season coming round again next year.

 The middle of the month with the weather still holding up allowed for a couple of wrasse sessions  down at Burntisland, a rig had been placed about 100 yds from the breakwater dominating the view, the sessions  they were really  productive with corkwings , and ballans .

A nice green one 

A wee goldsinny

On the last weekend of the month we had our first go of the year at grayling on the upper Clyde  , the water was a bit higher than expected and a bit peaty , we managed a few now out of season  trout and eventually brian took a nice grayling on a nymph. We retreated back to the car chilled by the cold wind.
 So that was October , the weather has finally started to become quite autumnal  hopefullystill get some good sport into November.
