Just wondered if anyone has been out and catching fish yet

Been out myself a few times and caught a few grayling 1lb to 1-1/2 and rainbows 2 to 4lb all returned of course. Still very cold in Scotland so still staying deep in the water.

Can't wait til' the fly season starts proper

Yes they are, and 9/10 you can't tell they are on until you bring the line in! Very light fish!

Can't beat a bit of lugworm! Especially if you dig it yourself!

Hubby fishes with 3-4oz lead, 3 hook line, with worm, maybe tipped with squid. The flatties like sand where they can grub about. We fish two hours uptide and two hours down tide, but in some areas one can fish all round the tide and catch!

He has got most of his sea fishing rods from car boots, and never paid more than £30. A lot of the tackle shops do a rod and reel at bargain prices, so keep an eye out!

I have a pink Fladen rod and reel for £20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fished Weybourne over Easter and had sheds loads of flatties, whiting, rockling, dab and a small bass. Hubby was well chuffed.

Fished Rutland Water on Sunday and the fish are playing there! Hubby lost two and caught one about 2.5 pounds. Well chuffed.

Just got back at the weekend from minding my cousins fishery www.stoneyfieldlochs.com at Invergordon just past Inverness in the highlands.

Had a fantastic time running the place while they where swanning it in Gran Canaria....Free fishing every night and catching brownies and rainbows rangeing from

2.lbs to 15.lbs. For those interested in fishing whilst 'vanning in the highlands this place place is well worth a visit.....

For those who have never caught a flattie, try visiting Palnackie near Dalbeattie Dumfries and Galloway in about august time you could enter the flounder trampling world championships held every year. You have to find the flattie with your bare feet and then catch them with your hands good to see and fun to do.

First proper days fishing at Twin Lakes last Saturday and this was the first one out...

IMG_0485.jpg

Estimated (by Gary) to be 15-16lbs.

Thought it would be all down hill from there but I pulled a 10ish lb one out this morning.

Unfortunately it was very early and my personal photographer (SWMBO) was still in bed!!!

I feel sorry for some of the fellow residents of our site, there are a number of enthusiastic fishermen who set off to the beach (less than a minute away) at all times of the day and night. So far this year the only thing to be caught is one small dog fish!

I'm not into fishing myself but I do feel sorry for these guys, they put in so much effort and enthusiasm and with so little reward this year.
