With the ridiculous weather we have been having lately its been 3 months since I last fished my home grounds on the east coast of Ireland. So Sunday gone I was up at 5am a quick chat with the dog over breakfast and I was on my merry way. 30 minutes later and I was looking out onto Dublin Bay, the wind was against the tide and causing it to be fairly lumpy after what seemed like 5 hours I was eventually geared up
Onwards I peddled out to 40 ft of water and set about a couple of drifts, lug worm and mackerel was the bait choices. Unfortunately it was very quiet and the only thing the dubby attracted was a huge seal
. With two hours passed I headed for some shelter in the bay. In the distance I could see my good friend John Hughes cruising in his boat towards me
Myself and John hung about the same grounds chatting and having the usual Craic. He even showed me his trick of how he turns a two piece rod into a three piece one
We were then joined by Mr David Smith and his friend. A meeting of the anglers on a cold windy day, I was glad of the company as the fish weren't about. David was telling me the story of how he thought Graham Smith everything he knows especially how to catch TOPE
So the fish didnt play ball and the weather made life difficult but it was great to be out and about. Thank god for this wee fellow
Until next week ..................................................
