What a day.

After so many kayak fishing trips, Andy Richardson from Field2Stream'TV Decided to contact me regarding a kayak fishing trip .I was really please to be able to share a passion.After a phone call and a week later we met at Glencoe village facing Loch Leven .I knew Andy on Facebook and he was interested trying the kayak sea fishing.I set off at night and slepped in the car saving me the 2 hours morning drive.Andy got there at the crack of dawn just facing the Pap of Glencoe.Loch Leven is scenic and the weather that morning just still.Andy is a kayak virgin and carrying that extra expensive camera was just a little challange ..We set off and did the paddling and explore thing.from time to time and from the hard ground Andy would film our was hard and my plan was to catch a decent fish.I started with some sizable hooks and was getting good bites but no fish would come up.Andy did not wait long to pull his first ever dogfish ,I unhooked to rough skinned fish and released it for another day.And some whitting ,poor cod and baby dog fish followed soon after .Stopping for tea and a leg stretch I noticed something on the rocky beach ,A very old clay pipe dating probably hundreds of years and belonging maybe to a clan Mc Donald.Just an amazing find topping the day ..Andy is now editing the new Movie,trying to show ,maybe promote kayak fishing in scotland and I was just please to be part of this.So we had fish,we paddle in a beautiful location ,we kept affloat ,I found an old treasure and he made a movie..What else on earth a fisherman would ask for ? ..From time to time I take some friend on my wife spare kayak..if you ever interested to try something new and fun and crazy just let me know.Fish Guaranted and 100 cent Total Adventure...
