The desire to carry the minimum of luggage increases
in direct proportion to my ever expanding beer gut

Impressed with Fairziff's sand spike I've been looking out for one
and castwatch intelligence had news of them for a fiver on the tackle stall
at Towyn Market -I rattled my piggy bank.

The spike was unbranded but looked up to the job.
The top bracket was a bit loose but soon sorted with a blob of araldite.
I gave it a coat of wax and a spray of WD40.


Planned a lightweight hike for Saturday afternoon Low.
Just the bass rod and no sinkers over 3oz.
Walked round to Mehmet's where he generously loaded my caddy with some
6 oz weights he'd recovered off the beach!


Striding by Splash', pressing on passed a lone angler on the NBG,

digging in at The Pipe,
and finally trudging to Salem Bungalow,
the light gear was easy on the arms but the legs were starting to feel under par.

Salem - remains of;

Two washed up round fish, "golfus sphericus"

Suffering with leads burying in soft mud we shifted another 200 yards East
to find firmer ground.

Bait: lug, crab, sand eel and squid - all blanked.

Pleased with the spike ,

it held very firmly in dry-ish sand,
topples a bit as the water table rises, but moving back is a piece of cake.


Walked/fished/walked our way back

Salem kept its secrets cloaked


no joy at The Pipe either.

The spike can be jammed into gaps at Splash's rocks

On Parry's Corner Maestro found another "sphericus" ( note the breeding plummage)

Nightfall, rain & boredom were setting in

Taking up golf instead seemed a possibility

Verdict on the spike? It's no load of b*lls, doubt it would hold my 16 foot beach caster
but I'm well pleased with it for lighter rods.

Declaring the fishing a blank,

wound in for the last time and,
what d'ya know, Maestro had a fish on.


Spikes and weevers wobble but they don't fall down

A mammouth session!

A truly under par performance that deserved better.

Well done!
