I really cannot get over how good the weather is at the moment. Galway is getting weather that would not disappoint during the summer, never mind the spring! Long may it last.

The last trip out couldn’t see me find any fish and the trip out the other day saw me confined to sheltered ponds. Today was another glorious spring day in Galway and I wanted to spend some of it on the bay.

Wind forecasts of thirty knots kept me off the sea this afternoon and I decided to have a look at some small lakes closer to ‘home’. Well sheltered, they are a safe bet in windy weather.

The last week was a real treat in terms of the glorious weather that smiled down upon us. It’s rare that we get a dose of summer weather in April in Ireland, never mind Galway!

Saturday was a beautiful day but to avoid a Valentine’s Day massacre I stalled the fishing plans for the weekend until Sunday. Saturday would have been a lot drier.

I headed back to the east coast for the weekend. Fishing was on the agenda but not in the conventional form. I was on the lookout for a new ‘fishing wagon’.

Calm conditions have, in typical fashion, coincided with starting a job! I still managed to get a short stint on the water a couple of days ago even if the fish didn’t want to come out to play.

I have been too busy to go fishing for the last couple of weeks, a sentence that to me sounds as repulsive as it reads! But today I was going to get out onto the water….

With the summer drawing to a close it was time to travel back to Galway. College recommences next week and that signals the end of the summer’s transient existence.

There is a spot that I am very fond of for its sheer beauty. Way out west, it features a beach framed with dunes and the finest sand. Crystal clear water breaks onto the crescent shaped utopia. It was here we headed for today.
