Caernarfon Castle :)

Myself and Pete visited Caernarfon during our Straits fishing stint.

We stepped off the sibs to stretch our legs and treated ourselves to a welcoming ice cream.

Great day not a lot of fish to talk about but an enjoyable one nevertheless.

And good company :)

It was a great day out Paul, the fish are there but I think different tactics next time...I was little apprehensive going out on the
Straits, not because it was only my second time out on the sea, but anyone who's driven over one the bridges will see the current and areas of rolling and what looks like boiling water if that's the right description. But I needn't have worried, my 6 hp did a cracking job, it just took a while getting anywhere...

To give you an idea, we launched at Moel y Don and went left up to the Britannia Bridge. We fished on the drift and at anchor for a while before making or way to Caernarfon Castle for the ice cream stop, and then out towards the southern end of the Straits to anchor up...

The Menia Straits is a beautiful place Martin even more so by water. It did seem a little strange going in to the harbour, but if you do make it down, as soon as you enter we moored at the steps on the left. The ice cream van is on the car park :D ...
