an article caught my eye,
“ Britain’s Busiest Beach
..The bites never stop coming...
The venue always gives up many species…rays are almost certain to show…literally anyone can catch…no need to cast to the horizon…less than 50 yards…if it’s flounders and turbot you want then less than 10 yards
Splash Point during an airshow? - No
Borth -apparently - and I was working just around the corner!!!
So Tuesday evening saw me all excited and arriving just before Low.
It didn’t look that busy!
Not convinced by those 10 yard turbot I waded out 30 yards in m’shorts and launched rag -tipped with cynicsm.
It wasn’t exactly a corker of a session and doubtless the very small tide didn’t help, but the mag. was partly right, the rod tip just kept on dipping and I did catch loads of species ,
-in fact I’ve never seem so many types of weed and I had a particularly huge take -that turned out to be a bin bag.
Wednesday at dusk, a change of venue.
Chucked the Slug-go off Aberystwyth North Beach landing stage for an hour, kept busy only by chatty passers by.
on Aberystwyth’s quiet South beach
at least the dogs were ever reliable on sand eel.
As for Borth?
-Taking comfort in a second opinion from an Aberystwyth forum, tide is critical on Borth’s very shallow beach
- I’m busy planning a return session on a bigger tide !
