Welcome Bert, You have joined a great site, not a Fisherman myself but we all like a good yarn so if you have any please share it with us.
I love Thurso and visit at least once a year. My favourite place to stay the Weighbridge Inn.


Jim.

Kia ora from Kiwiland, Bert, Welcome to the site: The only fishing I've ever done is setting the net of an evening and picking it up next morning, or casting off the rocks...it's getting harder to get a feed...either way! Vix (Night)
