Whats been happening?

Been ages since i last done a post , mostly due to lack of time , and access to the pc .
Theres been a few fishing trips , the first i recall was a LRF fishing meet with Scott and Guy about a month ago  we met at Dunbar harbour . Whilst waiting for scott and guy to arrive i fished various spots in the harbour and manageda little sand goby on a  pink crazyfish tipsy worm attached to a heavy 7g cheburashka for control in the strong winds.
 Not long after that Scott and Guy arrived and we fished in the corner for the various little flat fish and it wasnt long before we had a few little plaice between us.
Later we moved in to the inner harbour as the tide began to come in , Scott between me and guy was hitting flounders pretty regularly whilst we couldn't get a fish . The way the isome worm was rigged was interesting and maybe the key , something i learned and ill remember .

 After that we went down to st Abbs harbour to see if there was anything else around. We managed cod , coalies wee pollack and a few flounder .

 It was great meeting up with Scott again and fishing with Guy and hopefully the Light game fishing group that Scott has started will flourish, its a great opportunity to learn new tactics and share ideas , plus unlike many forms of fishing this does suit the social aspect, which I like.

Ive also had the odd trout trip though theyve been pretty uneventful , with often  coloured water and high winds.

Last weekend i went to visit my parents in Arbroath my brother happened to be home in Arbroath to at the time so we planned for a few hours on Elliot beach , with the prospect of a turbot.

mission accomplished

 lots of little flounders and a single turbot.Not  bad  for a few hours fishing.

That pretty much brings me up to date. Was hoping for a trip to Skye with Brian this weekend but due to a dog wih a split paw I've got to keep my eye on him this weekend . Still I've got a holiday in Fuertevenura next week and yes ill be taking the rod, and maybe ill get out before then. So until next time ................
