As the title of this post tells you, i havnt been able to go fishing recently. School holidays, decorating and visitors from abroad have kept me awayfrom the riverbanks.
I have attempted to make two trips recently but have had to canel both at the last minute due to DIY commitments.
However a trip to Blackpool gave me the chance to visit West Coast Angling supplies (a fortuitous rain storm gave me a good excuse to shelter in a tackle shop for half an hour) where i picked up these lovely MAP stick and avon floats.
The next day, i took Lucia and our visitors for a walk around the north coast of Holy Island which is located off the west coast of Anglesey. I have searched for a rock mark called Mackerel Rock for quite a few years now, and finally discovered its location during our walk ( guesses for what its famous for). Again the weather was terrible, but this didnt alter the beautiful dramatic scenery which we were hiking through.
