Third cast and here come the “wild swimmers” to whom I remarked, “which one of us looks more daft, you or me!?”. It was 6:30am, dark and fresh. I kind of admired their adventure but I wasn’t about to swap my fishing rod for a pair of speedos!
Whilst we hatched “plan b” we enjoyed watching a minki whale joined by rissos dolphins and more common dolphins and porpoises than you you shake a stick at. Lovely to see the bay coming to life again and a little earlier this year.
Looking back through my May photos, I think the March weather saying, “in like a lion, out like a lamb” would be spot on. May started with temperatures still low with wet and windy weather. Typing now at the end of the month, it’s hot!
It’s April and the fishing lesson fun has begun! The long daylight hours and the increasing (slightly) temperatures have got the fish on the move and on the feed and everything just feels a bit easier.
