The last couple of months however, have been like getting blood from a stone. Not even our spikey Scorpion friends have been biting! And the icy winds have been unbearable, deterring many anglers from the sea.
Last night however, Fowey really seemed a bit more like it's old self again! I had a Common Blenny and a small Flounder, which, after the recent conditions were a very welcome surprise! Both were caught close in, on Brown Isome and despite their small size put a nice bend in my 1-5g rod.
Unfortunately, it was time to go home, but had it not been, I'm sure we would have had some great fishing there. Will did manage to tempt out, one little Pollock - but it was the larger fish beneath that would have provided the most sport. (Dare I say Bass?)
Anyway, all in all we had a good time, the fishing wasn't amazing but its a darn sight better than it was a few weeks ago. Summer is finally bullying Winter back into it's hole, and it shouldn't be long before the fishing really starts to pick up!
Tight Lines! (Hopefully see some of you at the Plymouth Comp)
