With a morning of light winds forecast I decided to spend some time on the water. The southerlies were supposed to build throughout the morning to peak in the afternoon.

A bank holiday weekend had arrived and I was looking forward to some further exploration in the Kingdom that is the scenic county of Kerry in Ireland’s south west.

I had to bring auld Betsy to the NCT today for her test. She passed with flying colours so I decided to go fishing in the afternoon to see if a good morning would herald some luck.

It has been a while since I have done any sort of fishing. Finishing up college saw me very busy for a few days while I tried to sort myself out with some work.

Anglers have to be the eternal optimists, I can’t think of any other reason for subjecting ourselves to deplorable weather and temperatures in the hopes of finding a monster.
