And now… its all about the fishing.

With August looming on us, the kids are all on holiday, and it been raining for two weeks, it can mean only one thing. Its definitely summer time here in the north-east. And that means no more swell or any chance of waves… No problem. Break-out the jet-ski, the diving mask and the kite-board… plenty more fun to be had – including some fine fishing. We’ve been eating very well recently on the freshest of fish direct from the Bay – Sea trout, mackerel and cod. Superb fresh fare !.

This leads me (conveniently) into the plug for the first Beadnell Bay open-boat fishing competition.
