Around at Longstone Peninsula I spent a while casting various flies near the point. I didn't have a touch there so moved farther into the bay for a Kelly Kettle brew.
By then it was early afternoon and I tried in front of the ruined manor house. I had one pull followed a little later with a rainbow of 1lb 12oz on the bank. Both times I was using a sinking line and a single orange booby, letting it sink to the bottom before slowly retrieving. The air temperature was 8C but the water was a very chilly 4-5C. I was glad of my thermals under my new zippy waders!
