Well done Mal. Never heard of thornies at Mostyn before, the way to catch them seems to be to fish where me and Steve aren't!

I heard of a couple caught last year, and have been told there is a lot more than thornies there too.

There were a few thornies caught at mostyn last year I heard of about 6 or 7 and I actually wittnessed 2 , one to a mate of mine which was about 4 pound and one of 9 pound in a match , but both of these were in may the 6th and 13th according to my journal (anorak). I reckon they must be after the peelers in the river anyway there very welcome and I'll trying for a bigger one next chance I get
