You're right its a lovely part of the world but I'd keep it quiet if I was you. I'll be in the area soon on a weeks on the water wildlife safari aboard "Guideliner" at the end of June I'll keep an eye out for you. How have you got the fishing rod attached to the A frame? do you position it like that purely for stowage or do you troll with it. I'm hoping to do quite a bit of fishing this year from the RIB and have the same frame on my Humber. Any advice on mounting the rod, rigs, tactics etc gratefully recieved.

We just bought the rod a week or so ago and haven't used it yet, mainly because when I used to run hardboat trips the skipper used to let me use his rods between dives and we used to catch dinner
I thought hard about the danger of hooks on the tubes but decided it was acceptable with care. I use what the hardboat does, mackerel feathers but cut down to two lures instead of four to make it less likely to snag the tubes. They seem to work for all fish
I have my cables loomed up in the corner and the rod sits between the transom and loom in the corner with a bungee round the A frame further up just for stowage. Hasn't fallen off in the 110 miles I have done since attaching it, some of it quite rough through the Corryvreckan last week.

Ha, ha, ha! I've been waiting for this moment...

"some of it quite rough through the Corryvreckan last week"

Been there, done that (thanks to Brian) but was unable to buy the tee shirt.

Thanks for that, good tip about cutting the rig down to two hooks, could be a bit awkward with four or six wriggly fish some sharp hooks and the tubes.

My dive bud also likes to TRY and catch supper - I've found that sliding a length of 50mm drian pipe ( ex B&Q) over the rod which then ties/bungies to the A-frame, does a great job.
I'm still nervous when he's pulling in those massive fish ???!!! when the hooks near my delicate bits .............. the hypalon bits that is !!!!!!

Tried it out on Wednesday, worked fine and even caught some Pollack. Crap fisherman though as we put them all back cos they weren't big enough
