Looked a promising evening and by 5.30 I was on the beach in anticipation of High tonight, a reasonable surf running from the Westerly-ish and a seal parked 300 yards out.

Mehmet joined me as I whacked the distance rod out then started setting up the bass rod for close in, as I did so my tripod went over and on closer inspection a leg had snapped.

Turning the broken leg the other way up I shoved it in the stump and sort of carried on with a very wonky tripod



Unfortunately the water was full of weed and within 5 minutes of every cast the slow steady arc in the rod told me there was a washing line full of it.

After a few casts stripping the green stuff off again was getting bothersome and with a broken tripod I'd visions of it going over and smashing the rod.

Sacked it, at least it's only a thimble full of diesel to get home.

Casting an eye seaward hundreds of birds were massing and diving on something half way to the wind farm, roughly straight out from the harbour.

Personally I'm going to dive into a bottle and get legless.

In the military you'd get a medal for carrying on with a broken leg Exclamation
But in your case a bottle will have to do beer
