Kayak Fishing off Bude,December 2008

What a complete contrast to the ghastly weather only two days ago.The wind had dropped and more remarkably the swell had also virtually vanished, allowing access to the open sea for the first time for months.

Unfortunately the rain had left the inshore water cloudy so my efforts to catch a bass by trolling were in vain. Fortunately I foul-hooked a pouting when I switched to mackerel feathers. Of course I put it back after a photo shoot….

Although winter marine wildlife is a bit more thin on the ground than in the summer, I was treated to a flypast of several Red-throated Divers.
