Hya,
Just got back from the short arm and yes i bloody blanked,saw a bloke catch and keep a small barely legal pollack.
I was walking on minding my own business, when i looked down amongst the rocks and i thought Henry Gilby was fishing Port Talbot Short Arm, i was about to ask for his autograph, when he turned around and i noticed that it wasnt henry at all, but Phil the Float, from behind they look the same but on closer inspection you will notice Henry Gilbys hair is natural and not Natrisse by Garnier.
Phil later came to fish alongside me, and warned me that he talks to himself, "thats ok", i said, "I argue with myself".
Even though i blanked and it was a miserable day weather wise, i enjoyed the fishing and the company. Phil caught a fish, but thats another story which he will probrably tell you about when he comes on.:p

You saying that phil the float, has a ponytail ( and a mate with his name splashed all over his clothing (Julian whatever his name is , Shambrook)and spends most of his time threatening to eat his hat if this fish is a dogfish.

Yep I caught a fish, yippeeee, a mackerel by fishing on the inside with frozen sandeel as bait. Brought it in, give it a good talking to with my religous advisor an eye pops out, I thought to myself, well I spoke to myself, " I will put this bugger in a bag in a minute, turned around and he was gone"

about 5 or so mins after I saw a BAS jump 5 feet in front of me.

Good day, apart from the weather and lack of fish.

I also agree with you, that pollack was borderline, I would have released it!

Underneath the colours it is natural, what are you on about, it is all natural dyes. Yes I have more than one colour

Henry has now gone boring, he has short hair!

Done, I was taking to the old guy who had that pollack, I had a live sandeel on with my rod on the float and my float bogs orff, so I run back to my rod, picked it up, and up pops the float. GRRRRRrrrrrr

Planning on going to my new home, the short arm on saturday, not to sure about the tim. I will most probably be hungover on Sunday, going to a barbie/birthday party next door. They like their booze, so it could be flowing very well!

As for mullet, I dont like them, I prefer to go for mackeral, bass and pollack on the float.

Mackeral especially on light gear, not as light as you would use for mullet, but great fun all the same!

Come on then Phillis tell me what rigs and bait I need for tomorrow. And what rods do I need, rough ground or clean? Plain leads or wired? 2/0 or size 4? White or brown? Coke or Pepsi? Bonde or Brunette?
