The next day Scott invited me for a tour of st Abbs Head. I was fair excited about the prospects , Scott was straight into the coalfish on some wee metals , there a good average size too. He also did quite well with the Pollock on them , in fact he had 3 nice pollack through out the course of the day and they gave a really good account of themselves on the light gear.

The swell increased as the tide came in and we decided to move to another mark not before taking on a untested mark which not only didnt produce as it was very snaggy it caused us a bit problems getting back up, with crumbling sandstone and loose soil, but ventually we were back on terra firma .

After trying there we had a go in the harbour we had a few flounder before heading to Starney bay .

There the fishing was really slow then all of a sudden it kicked off , Scott managed another two pollack the last one gave us a fantastic visual fighting display in thecrystal clear water , i had a flouder and released a nice cod as i tried to get it to the landing area , looks like it would be good one for the fly rod as you can easily get in a backcast.
