Tomorrow I am hoping to spend the best part of the day fly fishing for wild brownies. My father has recommended the black buzzers so I will be employing a team of them. Fings crossed for light winds and no rain tomorrow as the weather forecast foretells. Catch sults will be on here tomorrow.

I had about thirty fish over the two days on this set up though none were larger than 6lb. I attempted fishing bread on the surface and managed to get a chub as the bread dropped during the late afternoon!
Spring is in the air! I saw a grass snake sunning itself on the bank and there seems to be a lot if insects stirring. I apologize for the brevity of this post, I hace started a new job as an Environmental Field Scientist which is absorbing my daylight hours!!!!
I will be hoping to visit this venue again next weekend, spent 24 hours carp fishing at a venue known as Camelot lake in Wortwell and completely blanked! Will post the session on here tomorrow!

I fished Dunwich beach on Saturday 11th February with some friends. I am not an experienced beach fisherman and have no gear of my own so I borrowed my brothers Browning beach rod and Grandfathers Mitchell reel as well as other gear.
Dunwich has sandbanks and gullies running parallel to the beach. I used a standard two hook rig which allowed for both baits to be fished close to/on the bottom. I knew there was a sandbank in front of me because of the breaking waves at low tide, I decided to fish around this feature.
There was a small swell in the water but the sea state was fairly calm, the water was not overly muddy. As the tide pushed in for an hour I had a flounder of 25cm, this was caught on the far side of the sand bank so I decided to cast to that spot again. This yielded a good result in the form of a 30cm flounder. We were expecting dabs so the flounder were a pleasant surprise.
I enjoyed the day and think I may invest in some beach fishing gear now it has kindled my interest!
