    Easy fishing for beginners

    by sourbugger Updated Nov 6, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am 35 years old, and this was the first time that I have ever taken my rod out (Fnarr-Fnarr)

    We fished off the quay at the end of the island past East town and I bagged a fish on my very first attempt.

    On the second cast I caught two fish together - to my astonishment..

    I caught Coalfish - although I was really after Pollack (as in the picture) as it is lovely for breakfast.

    It seemed that an hour before high tide was the best time to go, and I'm convinced that the streetlight on the quay helped as well.

    Equipment: No bait needed just a shiny thing that looked like a prat on the end of the line (sorry I really did mean Sprat - thanks Tara)

    Jogging rarely gets this good

    Jogging on Tory island is wonderful - mainly due to the fact that there are very few cars and only one road.

    You can jog from one end of the island (about 3 miles) and never have to worry about where you are.

    A jog out to the lighthouse is also good fun following a road, then a cart track, then a path before heading back by the road.

    With so many ions in the air - it is a truely uplifting experience.
