Fall 2005 on my Mahout fishing in Mennans Cove ; Kennebecassis Rothesay New Brunswick .
Retired at last !
The skipper thing is easy except for docking when bridge control sticks and I think I am disengaged ! Tends to hit the Dock a wee bit ; must get round to fixing that before 2006 season .

Thats a good looking fish but I like the hat better. Flown in many of the old Otters and Beavers.

A lot of people has tried to get that hat from me !
My no 1 Son is an Aircraft Maintainance Engineer and he was given this when he did the Twin Otter course with Fight Saftey . There are not that many around so I guard it well .
Otter is a bit slow but a wonderfull STAL ; I'v flown in it a few times a few times ( as passenger ) before retiring .We just had 1 pilot so I was able to sit in the cockpit .

Great photo. I'm a really keen angler, especially fly-fishing. Looking at the Rod, reel and lure. I guees you were not spinning as the reel looks like a centre-pin reel and not a Fly reel and the lure/plug looks like a Rapala. The Rod may be a double-handed salmon rod. But my guess is you were tawling the lure and you choose to use a cntre-pin reel rather than a fixed-spool one.

Would appreciate you passing on to me your tactics and set up on catching that fine fish.

By the way are they good eating?

Hi Mick ;
The rod is a salmon fly rod I made many years ago . It is fibre glass13 ft 6 inches ; made in 3 sections . As well as using it on the rivers I used it for trolling on Loch Ness and Loch Tay . The reel is a Hardy Marquis salmon fly reel ( centre pin ) . Lure is a Rapala or Yazuree . Line is a floaring fly line with about 400 yards braided nylon backing .
I fish with all the fly line and a bit of backing out ( about 30 yards ) I used a monofilament 12 ft trace and a spiral lead about 3 feet in front of the Rapala ( this fishes about 4 ft below the surface ) Troll at between 2 to 5 knots ( vary the speed ) .
The strippers are excellent eating .
Derek

Derek

Many thanks for the reply. I wasn't far off with my assumptions. Picture obviously showing you're enjoying yourself.

I'm joining ship later this month in Scotland and will spend most of spring up there. I hope to get out and about and do a spot of fishing.

I Fly-fish for Sea Bass when in South England ports on RFAs and i have a lot of success. I fish as light as possible 6-7 rod and floating line a leeder the same lngth as the rod and a litle eddestone eel (white). When the water is moving and the quicker the better. I get between the jetty and any ship alongside and let the lure go under the fender or pontoon, usually get a take just as the the line straightens out. Though it's not quite as easy as that, as there are ropes everywhere and you can't let the Bass see you as hey are easily spooked.

Once again thanks for the info.

Mick S
