Sunny Rhyl Sea Fishing Diary - Shore and Boat Fishing in North Wales header image 1

I don’t always make New Years Resolutions.
When I have done, I’ve had mixed results.

Amongst others, notable successes over the last few years include stopping biting my nails, gaining my skippers licence and learning to juggle.

Not always life changing I know, but as each year departs, I reserve the right to burden myself with a challenge that seems fitting to my current circumstances.

This year, I’ve made 2!

The first one is to revisit the Dee Bore.

I caught it by chance in 1987 during a walk from work to Barclays Bank in Queensferry. I was ignorant of what I was witnessing back then, but it was mighty impressive.

There’s not much on t’interweb about the Dee Bore, so it’s going to be filmed and reported.
Provisional date looks like the 10th March. That’s the biggest tide of the year, isn’t it?

I’ll be ‘borrowing’ my sons flip mino for the occasion and the trusty Canon Ixus will be out too.

According to the local experts, 1hr 50mins before HW is the time.
I’ll be arriving early just to make sure though!

Word has it that the dredging in the last few years, carried out to facilitate the Airbus Barge, has had an adverse affect on the Bore.
More a ripple than the large wave that I experienced back in 87.
We’ll see!

I did a recce today.

Just by the Blue Bridge in Queensferry.
Apparantly, you can catch the Bore there and then hop in the car and catch it again at Saltney Bridge, traffic permitting :)

I’ve fished this mark before. I blanked then but know that it holds good amounts of Fluke and Eel to those that know how to fish it.
Maybe I’ll fish the bore??

I will be there!!!!

Report to follow………..

My other resolution may not be so simple!!!!

    I saw the Dee bore a couple of times many years ago, once by the little roodee (?) car park, about 3 feet high, more liquid mud than water, the second time caught the end of it with water pouring upstream of the weir at bridge street.
    The Severn bore is much better, saw it when at forestry school at the Forest of Dene.

    Interesting stuff Rhod. 3ft sounds impressive!

    Be good to see it hitting the wier too!
