Once again we took our 2 week summer break on Anglesey where we intended to do a bit of walking and sea fishing. The weather was exceptional and we managed to get out and about on every day we wanted too, some days though we were so relaxed even fishing seemed hard wrok – I know – even I was amazed but Anglesey does that to you, you turn up and all the worries in the world just vanish as the island casts a spell upon you.

After a while, I’m not sure which day we meandered over to our favorite spot of the year, a…

After a late night today we decided on something a little easier – rock fishing for Wrasse of Llanbadrig just past the church – unfortunately for us we’d forgotten that the church is still active and we couldn’t find anywhere to park so plan B was to go a fish off Wylfa head, just round the corner from the Nuclear Power Station. After parking up we wound our way to our chosen area only to find some other people had beaten us to it! We had a search around but…
