Andrew and the kids arrived at our Clash caravan about two hours before hw. I was really looking forward to this short session as I had not seen Caitlin and Kyle for ages and look on them as my "extended Stranraer family". We had a quick cuppa and blether on the veranda and then headed off to East Tarbet in Andrews car.

When we arrived,there were a few tents pitched up and I noticed the usual cans and beer bottles lying around. We decided on a quick "Wombling" session when we returned to the car later. After a 10/15 minute walk south along the cliff path we arrived at our fishing mark. Wrasse and pollack were our intended targets and we had lug and limpet for bait. The weather was perfect for this and I was feeling confident.

It was decided to make this a fun comp so the teams were Andrew and myself (The Old Codgers) against Caitlin and Kyle (The Stranraer Sea Dogs) !!!!! After a few missed bites I was first in with a wrasse. Caitlin was the photographer,thanks Caitlin.



Next in it was Andrew with a mackerel on a spinner,come on the Old Codgers LOL. The photo was a long distance zoom and you cannot make out very well the fish he is holding up.



It was me with a pollack next on float fished lug



Caitlin at last hooked into a fish on ledgered worm and it proved to be the best fish of the session,a lovely wrasse.



It was another wrasse for me next



It was great to be fishing with Andrew and the kids again



All we needed was for Kyle to catch a fish now and that is exactly what happened as he reeled in a wrasse.



After hw the fish seemed to go off the feed but I did manage to tice a coalfish which proved to be the last fish of the session. Andrew decide to try flyfishing for pollack,never had any hookups but did have a real good fish follow his fly in. This was our fishing mark,you can just make out East tarbet in the distance. All in all a most enjoyable session with all fish being safely returned.



On our way back to the car we passed Duckman and Zippy and she was reeling in a small wrasse which ended her blank. Duckman and Zippy had been camping at the Clash and had spent the previous night with us in our caravan on the bevvy,it just has to be done. I did comment that she smelt as sweet as a rose as I passed which got her chuckling (private joke)



It was rubbish bags out next and collecting cans and bottles from the beach. I have seen it much worse but we still managed to fill 3 large bags. Lets see how long it stays clean for !!!!



We finally headed back to our caravan in Drummore and a final cuppa and blether and a team photo. What a cracking day we had out,no big fish but we had all caught and all fish had been returned to fight another day. Many thanks to the Tack4s for their company.

Seems you have a competitor with the camera as well. Good stuff. :thumbs:
Aye all of the Tack4's are handy with a camera. What a great few days I have had. Meeting everyone at the MOG WSF comp and having quite a few bevvies with everyone. Got an e-mail off Scottpix and he said that the highlight for him was seeing an otter fooling around in front of us during an evening session. He was also impressed with the MOG night skies and the shooting stars that we seen.

As far as our "wombling session" on East Tarbet beach - we left it virtually spotless,I wonder how long it will last for?

Although I did not fish the comp I took loads of photos at the launch and also some in the Clash afterwards. Will start off a separate topic for them now and hope someone can add a few fish photos from the day. :)
