Sadly, my premature senility means this is a much delayed report and I couldn’t be rsed to fill the form in! Apologies to all! Well, having not been able to get out for a number of weeks, I WAS gagging for it! Met up with those decidedly shady characters Bigfin and Mr Krackof; wandered off to deepest Suffolk for a bass/coddie bash. It was a nice onshore from the north west; particularly mild with a cracking surf on! We fished the flood from the bottom almost to the top. Quiet for the first hour and then I had a monumental slack liner that saw my line on the bloomin beach before I got to my rod!! Never the less a nice silver bar; around 2 and an arf duly arrived in the surf and thence to my plate; yummy! That was my lot apart from an u/size coddie late on for 5hrs fishing, but din’t care; was made up! My accomplices managed a varied bag of codling, yting and sole, and a great evening was had with very good friends
Hopton,had one night at the holiday village helping with family stuff,,latest news ,,,its fishable down beach road to the right but only when the diggers arn’t working and they didn’t work saturday afternoon to sunday evening ,,,they also close beach road at the junction to the housing estate when the trucks are moving aggregates down beach road.At the bottom of beach road there is a fence preventing you walking left towards gorleston and security guards there,,,So no access from the holiday village to the beach at all,the slope you’d go down if you parked at the launderette is closed ,,the fishtail groynes go out in bays but there’s loads of rock in between which I presume is waiting to be put in the correct places,,,The old wooden groynes are in the middle of the fishtail groynes in a couple of bays so not much room to fish,,,The rocks only go out 50 yards or so and i dont think they are long enough to be a structure to hold fish,,,There isn’t much beach right of beach road and you are on the sea wall getting soaked by the waves over high water,,,,

For those who may be interested I’ve just returned from Gatwick airport after dropping off Adele and new cap Kimberley Lawn from Cromer who are off to France to fish for the England Ladies Shore Team. I’d like to post here my best wishes to both of them and a huge congratulations to Kimberley on her selection. Kimberley has shown to many of us in East Anglia that she has huge enthusiasm and the potential to become a top angler for many years to come.

There are still some great evening tides to fish for the summer species , but with the shortening day, the problem of using a head lamp in the dark,in clear skinny water, without spooking the fish is real problem . What experience have you had using different coloured lights for night fishing, will make a difference ?
Using headlamps without spooking the fish ?

The ADC Hookair is set to become the solution to storing hook lengths that all top match anglers have been looking for. So simple yet genius in its design
