take a fork with you sandi, theres loads of beaches where you will be able to dig lug.....(keeping the ones with rag quiet ;) ) I am heading for crail harbour tomorrow, heard there's some nice Codling being caught from this mark?

Codling eh? Always fancied Crail (for a wee drive as much as fishing). Quite a trip from Glasgow however. What bait will be best for such a quarry *– judging by your last post i'm guessing rag :D

Once caught a codling on feathers whilst going for mackerel –*this was in Largs though, on a boat. Only other fish in three weeks of getting into the sport has been a bass.

Good luck in Crail.

Where you get your clappy doos from, they used to sell them at the barras , I live right round the corner from them and have been round, they only sell fake dvds and fags now.As for bait in fife the plant centre in south street sells all frozen bait and you can dig the worm on most big beaches, there is a place in cowdenbeath called reels n deals I think that does rag. the pet shop at kincardine does rag so you could pick some up on your way if you are passing. if you have acsess to the net on your hols loeave a post as i will be up that way soon and would like to know how it is fishing. Anstruther, cellardyke, crail,boarhills,kingsbarns and St Andrews all are good marks worth fishing

My aunt and uncle stay in Burntisland so I will definately take a bait trip that way enroute to somewhere further west (in the next couple of weeks). You'll get cockle and mussel there and by the sounds of it, rag/lug. Never dug for them myself though as a newcomer –*any tips?

Anstruther sounds good. Will wait to hear how Bigdunny got on in Crail.

Tight lines.

I would say i'm jealous but looking out the office window on the 1st June it is raining and cold. Grim – as I was hoping to go bassing on Friday, early doors!

Have a great holiday and good luck with the weather. I think it's to improve by the weekend in the Edinburgh / Fife region.

alright there,

st monans is also worth a go! all the other places have been mentioned, and are worth a go, but like fishing off the end of the breakwater in st monans! good for codling to three or four pounds...
