Todays event was a RNLI charity fundraising competition.

With over 20 people fishing and just as many organising and facilitating, it was fantastic to catch up with friends old and new.

Yesterday, the winds were battering the North Wales coastline. What a difference a day makes.
Bright sunshine and hardly a breath of wind greeted us as we arrived and cast out.

Bites were instant.
A trio of 3 Bearded Rockling from my first 2 casts got me off the mark.

Close by, The Maestro and Notbad were both into the Rockling.

Next up, the Dabs arrived.

Closely followed by the Whiting.

Both Dabs and Whiting were showing in big numbers. Everyone was catching at a steady rate.

Darkness arrived and it was more of the same.

The fish kept coming right up to the final whistle.

Time up!
I checked my card and it showed 20 fish.

Back at the marshall’s tent, tea, coffee, hot-dogs and stew were being served.

H read the results out.
Logun was the winner with a total length of 680cm.

TIG was 2nd with 490cm and I picked up 3rd prize with 480cm.

It was a fantastic day. The fishing was purely a means of getting us all out there.
There is a strong community of anglers in North Wales. Aided in particular by the revolution that is the internet. Without which, friendly meetings such as this would probably not take place.

I would like to personally thank H, Bev, Shane, Paul and Dee who I believe were the driving force behind this event. I’m sure that there are more people to thank, and I appologise for leaving you off the list.

A great event!!!
I look forward to the next one.

Long live the internet!!!!!!!

Happy Days!!!!!

    Hi mike,
    I came beach fishing on saturday 27 dec 2008 as planned with my son james 11,and we fished opposite the tarmac car park using two hook flapper rigs baited with frozen lug and mackerel,and boy was it tough going. We fished two hours either side of high tide. All we got was two small knocks but nothing landed. Four other fishermen from the Bolton area came and fished next to us but neither of them had a bite either.
    The sea was dead calm which did not help but it was great just been there.
    I have been a regular visiter to the Rhyl area since a small boy and i am 41 now. Upto sept 2008 we had a static caravan in Towyn but we sold it as the site owner kept hiking up the fees and at nearly £3000 pa it was too expensive!
    I would love to join yourself and the boys for a beach fish sometime as you seem a great bunch and i can get some tips!
    I plan on getting up to north wales for a fishing trip as often as possible but will probably leave it until march as it drops off i believe upto then.
    Enjoy your fishing and have a happy new year john.

    Hi John,
    Happy New Year and many thanks for the report.

    Keep an eye on the website and forum. If there is any communal event planned, it will be posted in those 2 places.

    Take care,
