I was pleasantly surprised that it was a charming wee spot, that gave us shelter with its distinctive crags and ruins an at our backs with a steady off shore breeze. the day its self was pleasant with no rain it felt almost spring like and that sparked up conversation of the coming season , trout , pike and SWFF, float-tubing amongst other species and methods , really looking forward for all that kicking off.
The flounder fishing for the time of year wasn't too bad either , between us we managed perhaps 10 to a dozen small flounder between us , but like other beaches we have sampled on the Fife coast it went off on the last couple of hours approaching high tide. Still it was really nice to get out with the rods and a bonus to catch our first flounders of 2014.

With the trout season now fast approaching I've been quietly going about a bit preparation , a few new purchases such as a new fly line ,a new pair of forceps , and I've had a few small sessions on the vice producing the usual klinks, shucked cdc's , dirty Pollies , wire nymphs the odd spider etc.

Lots more to do but still another 4 weeks to go, roll on the brownies!
