Angling Addicts Xmas Meet. Gynn Wall.

Postby shacky » 01 Dec 2019, 19:51

It was that time of year again and we were down the Gynn For the Christmas Meet. I had been given some extra prizes (More on that later).
The star performers were..Senatorkenny, Ray, Jonhill, PaulR, Tarmacduck, RobF, Billbob, Bagger, Willpower, Charlie(jnr), Rugbydanny, Skpitonian + 1 and moi.
The Weather would be our nemesis today, bitter cold :cold: and very frosty. A cold wind from the NNE started our day off. The sun was out though, this gave us a little heat.
I decided to fish right up to the Boating Pool wall, as i could meet people as they arrived, collect the tackle items and hand out the raffle tickets.
The sea was still way out and not much (gulleys) to go at. Though i would plonk a bait at the side of the outlet pipe. I needed a Rockling for the hunt..

Image

Plenty of time 'till the water reached us..

Image

The Addicts started to appear and filling up the wall..

Image

Right the way up to the slipway..

Image

The fishing began as the sea touched the wall. Not long after people went for walkies and a natter :blah:
Not much doing down our end of the wall, further along news filtered down fish were caught.
My rod fishing the pipe sprung to life, a welcome little Rockling made an entrance..

Image

Then the distance rod also showed activity..

Image

Dab at distance was the order of the day. These took me through to high water..

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

High water was here, a few of the lads had come down for a chat. Flounder and Whiting had been caught further up as well as Dab.
Chilly but sunny weather still prevailed..

Image

The wind on the ebb changed to a NNW and picked up in speed. For me this killed the fishing, but gave me a chance to have a good old chat :blah:
Skiptonian had to go early, nice to meet you and we'll catch up next time :fishing:

The sun was setting and i decided to pack up and sort the raffle prizes out..

Image

Winding in my first rod..

Image

Then the second..(blurry pic, sorry)..

Image

Talk about leaving it to the death :blink:
The others were packing in too..

Image

At the pool, Ray had the chilli on the go! and that's just what the doctor ordered in this weather :cold:
The raffle prizes sorted and ready to go..

Just have to mention, a BIG Thank you :thumb: to Steve 'TurboT' for his generous donation of a £25 tackle voucher for 'Gerrys'....This was for our Master Chef Ray as he never takes a penny off us for his tasty offerings.
Also Barry 'Tarmacduck' :thumb: for the junior prize of a rod. Which was very gratefully received by Charlie(jnr) :)
Plus everyone else for their tackle/prize donations. And Billbob for supplying the Birds :o ..Cheers Guys :clap: i couldn't have done it without you :notworthy:
Some of the Addicts..

Image

Bragging rights went to RobF who landed a nice Whiting of 38cm :champ: Well Done :victory:

I had an absolutely fantastic day, superb company, good ol' craic and a few fish to boot :yeah2:

Sounds like the weather was kind,though cool and the fish shy. :cold: :fish:
I guess that's why we call ourselves "addicts"
Well done Shacky :thumb: :gp:
