It’s Friday, it’s pretty windy, but we are all up for going fishing!
Our venue today is Ladye Bay near Clevedon, as we fancied a more local fish than travelling 2hrs to get somewhere.
So we headed down to Ladye Bay via the Audi garage to sit in the A3 Cabriolet.
It was a little windy to say the least, but we were going to give it a blast.
To be honest, it was a mistake and if we had listened to the owner of the fishing tackle shop we would have faired better!
Well we tried, well Neil did and so did Dave, I didn’t bother it was pointless as it was so rocky and slippery that I couldn’t see the point, plus the tide was going out quicker than you could imagine.
Dave managed to catch a small fish (whiting/codling?), but by this time Neil had given up too.
We decided to tell Dave it was time to move elsewhere (as he was fishing on a point away from us at this stage), he wasn’t too happy to start with but soon realised after losing his rig that it was perhaps an omen!
Well even worse, I fell over on the rocks and bashed my left leg pretty badly, the pain was indescribable! But as I had my fishing boots etc on, I did not look at what was beneath on my leg until 8pm that evening when going home!
So off we went to our next venue…
I’ll say not a lot about it, but we all thought it was fantastic, even though only 1 fish was caught (a 2.2lb codling), which is no doubt Saturday’s dinner for DT.
A good afternoon/evening had by all… and two added to the lead that DT has over myself and Neil!
