Not entirely sure why I stopped blogging, a few other things going on but no particular reason but I’m back now and hopefully I’ll get some more fishing done and some walking done. So without any more mumbling what have we been doing fishing wise. Well, to be perfectly honest, not a whole lot, we went to Anglesey for a week at the beginning of June and stayed at Ty Cristion, was fantastic. We didn’t really catch much but as it was going to be the end of September when…

We set off last Friday (just over a week ago) for our first trip to Anglesey this year, looking forward to a bit of fishing and a long weekend away. Our first stop was at a new tackle shop in Menai Bridge owned and run by Gareth, the founder of the fishing4u.co.uk sea fishing forum, where we picked up some bait and as usual bought some bits and pieces. We spent our first evening targeting Bass out of the Menai Straits but all we could catch was weed as the…

The new years is here and over on the west coast of the UK it arrived in some style, with winds gusting up to 70 mph. Where does the time go? We had every intention of going on a few fell walking trips as well as doing a lot more sea fishing over the Christmas break but before we knew it, it was time to go back to work. It doesn’t look like we’re going to have any snow this winter either – we’ve not even had frost in lowland…

The weather forecast was great with occasional showers and a light wind blowing onto the beaches we intended to fish as we arrived for our final sea fishing trip to Anglesey this year. We were staying at Ty Cristion again and after unloading the car and settling in I made a quick phone call to Gareth of fishing4u.co.uk and we set off for a secret mark well known to the local lads for big Bass. Unfortunately it must have been so secret the Bass failed to find us but we…

After the long hot and wind free July we were looking forward to some lazy days fishing from the rocks on Anglesey. Alas the weather gods had a different plan for us and after lazing around in the sun on, of all things, Sunday (what else…) we woke on Monday to rain and a strong Westerly wind which dented our plans a little so we did a bit of walking instead. After a while, I’m not sure which day we meandered over to our favorite spot of the year, a…

Well we’ve got back from our two week jaunt to Anglesey and I’m splitting this blog into two bits, walking and fishing. The weather was ‘interesting’ during the first week with west featuring predominantly in the wind direction which made fishing difficult so rather than stay inside on these blustery days we went out and explored the wonderful coastline that surrounds anglesey. The first photograph is of the cliffs around the South Stack area where we had a quick look at the RSPB station. There’s quite a lot of information…

Well I said that I’d had enough of gardening for a while so I had a quick look on the ‘web’ and found a few things that you might find of interest. Anglesey Coastal Footpath – at Leisure Again just a quick plug for this blog about a couple who are walking the anglesey coastal footpath. It makes excellent reading and the photographs are stunning. Fishing Wales The envirmonmental agencies website on where to fish in wales, covering all aspects of fishing including coarse, game and sea. Visit Anglesey All…

After the announcement during last week of the oil slick spotted in the Menai Straits, between Anglesey and the North Wales mainland, many people were very concerned about the ecological ramifications of such an event. The BBC had this to say last monday so it appears that the scale of the slick was not as great as it first appeared and according to the local coastguard and the environment agency the environmental impact on the area should be minimal. Lets hope the slick disperses quickly, leaving this beautiful area untouched…

Anglesey Coastal Footpath – at Leisure Just found this blog – brilliant – walking in one of our favourite areas. We’ve walked quiet a lot of the “Anglesey Coastal” path searching for fish and just getting away from the crowds so it’s great to sea someone else out there enjoying it.

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…
