I still managed out and about but not as often as previous years. However Im certain the wild life appreciated the quieter waters as I saw more whales and dolphins this year than in previous years..and the mackerel were/are very abundant and big. There are still one or two boats out making the most of it though .. this lot were all hiding in a quiet bay at Canna. All RIBNET members too.. and they thought they slipped by the border unnoticed



In Scotland ...Everyone had to be more self sufficient this year. Example .. we stopped on the pontoons in Kyleakin at lunch time on a Thursday in August which is their normal busy month..and every single cafe and pub was closed. The locals mentioned the cafe in the Kyle was open..but the pontoons were not out so we couldn’t land. Lots of beach BBQs and cooking fresh caught mackies were in order.

Yup..its been a funny year all round... Im off tomorrow to fill the freezer with mackies for over the winter ..yum yum ..then will wrap up the Quicksilver for the year at the end of the month and keep the wee F Rib going over the winter .. Im hoping I get out a lot more then as its been very windy since lockdown eased

Not really more logistics! I store the rib under cover 60 miles from home and 100 miles from itís mooring. So considering that plus other things going on at present we just thought the opportunities were few.

Don't know about you Guys and I know for some The Covid Debacle has made things much more difficult...but we couldn't wait to get on the Water soon as was practical within the advice and UK protocols.
Had a few local fishing trips......a Great weekend in Cornwall including a really nice Scillies isle run...and a recent Week on the West Coast of Scotland with friends
I do think if you're waiting for things to return to the way they were before the Wohan Pendemic was spread around the Globe you may not be getting out for quite a long time!!

With the proper precautions and social distancing within the Guidlines....at Sea ...within you're own "Bubble" must be one of the safest places to be!
I know getting out and doing our favourite pursuit again has certainly helped me and my family....in the lockdown aftermath.

Covid or no The Clock is still ticking
My thoughts and advice ....Keep up the Protocols keep The S.D ..take all relevant precautions and Fck em!
Or....as the Bard said.

A combination of not being away, not being able to visit family, having more time on my hands has meant a shortened (5mile rule was a PITA) I have done an almost normal number of hours on the water..... seasons not over yet

Weíve had one run down to Devon and loads around and about the IOW, heading to Hayling Island next week for the day.
It was a late start but our first summer of freedom after ditching work so we get to play whenever the sunís out!

Spot on things are Never!! going to be back to how it was this is how life is going to be from now on we are going to have to adapt to life under threat .i understand some folk have more to be concerned about than others and some are not taking the risk seriously but our own personal clocks will not stop ticking and i for one will be taking all possible precautions but not putting my life on hold any longer than i need too
