N 11

N 11

Heading down the N11
Arrangements made, must meet at seven,
Traffics heavy on the way,
Worst of all’s that stretch at Bray.
The Sugar Loaf , that tower of rock,
Standing guard at Kilmacanogue.

Speeding on I pass the Glen,
Where hippies tried to save the trees,
The roads much wider now than then,
But now the Countrys on its knees.
Further on I glimpse the sea,
I see what state she’s in today,
The wind is coming from the West,
And so I’m off to Brittas Bay.

Past Wicklow Town the Motorway ends,
The road becomes a string of bends.
Of all the trip this is the worst,
And not a place for tyres to burst.
Some flowers are placed which loved ones tend,
where some poor soul has met their end.

I see a sign, it says Jack Whites,
And now my journeys end’s in sight.
I meet my pals, set up my gear,
I’m glad I’m fishing,
Not on the Beer.
But all too soon it’s at an end,
And I must face that string of Bends.

An hour it takes me to get home,
They’re all in bed, and I’m alone.
I pour myself a c...

Tale of a Break

by eyesreilly

On a sandy beach by a deep blue sea,
a horrible thing just happened to me.
My rod that had cost me quite a few bob,
just snapped when I cast out, twas merely a lob :shock: .

With high hopes we set out, myself and the wife,
a few days away, to try the good life :wink:
Those days would be filled up with fishing and play,
Head down during midweek, come home on Friday.

On day one I drove down, set up at the rocks,
my small rod responded to all of those knocks.
Wrasse, blennies, pollock, a nice shore rock ling :wink:
While above me Mackbashers cast out all their bling.
But no macks were out there , not one did I see,
none for the bait fridge, or even for tea ...

The First Post

by eyesreilly

The First Post

He sits at the keyboard to relive his session
Describing each fish and his methods to catch ‘em.
Photos are added to bring others there,
Some people are happy, but others just glare. :evil:
That spot that they’ve searched for , For many a day,
Has now in an instant been given away. :cry:

The report is informative, clear and effective,
But alas it doesn’t take a detective,
To find that distant far off mark,
If only those photos were done in the dark! :roll:
Some ill tempered posts later, he’s copped his mistake,
He’s pleading for mercy, and say’s ”Give us a break”. :oops: ...

Furry Friends at my Favourite Peg

Furry Friends at my Favourite Peg

Now Noel I like it,of that I am sure :lol:
As for my rat phobia,I think you've the cure. :idea:
A cat sounds the answer, and him I would take,
but you see theres a problem, and his name is Jake. :roll:

Jake is my dog and he doesnt like cats, :evil:
so i'm afraid for the moment i'm stuck with the rats. :roll:
Who haunt me and tease me,drive me to distraction,
but worst of all cut short my good fishing action. ...
