The Rhins of Galloway.
Back today after a trek to a very lovely part of the world. Based at Ardwell, next to Ardwell Marine, and the knowledgeable Tim, I visited a number of differing venues as follows.
Terally Bay on the beach by the rocks by Myroc Point.
New England Bay again by Myroc Point.
Sandhead Beach by the car park.
Cairn Ryan on the disused Pier come building site.
Portpatrick on the rocky section opposite the pubs.
East Tarbet on the Mull of Galloway on rocks.
Also visits to Port William, Isle of Whithorn, Monreith, Drummore and to Wigtown.
Fish caught being Pollock, Coalfish(new species for me), Codling, Bass, Flounder, Dogfish, Plaice, Wrasse and lots of greedy goby type things. Not a sniff of a mackerel despite lots of hours put in.
I tried, casting with legers, spinning, float fishing, jellies and free lining from the rocks. Lost huge amounts of tackle but thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
I have already decided upon a return visit next year to cover the other fishy areas I saw.
A downside being the numerous blisters I have from digging worms , some snakes amongst them after finding the pump was not the tool to use here. A quick trip to an ironmongers at Stranraer sorted out that problem.
My other passion is birdwatching and I ticked off a number of firsts here too. Best of which was watching a peregrin falcon hunting at the Mull. Awesome.
A big thank you to theguyfella and slic88 for your very welcome and useful advice prior to the trip and Sandstorm, I think, who I met at both Terally Bay and then digging at Sandhead. Well done lads, a big thanks to you all.
I will be back...............................
