Fishing in Ireland

Lacken

We decided at the last minute to try a spot of beachcasting off the strand at Lacken yesterday but I only managed 3 casts before my vertigo kicked in and I had to call it a day. Here are some photos anyway.

The flags border the eastern end of Lacken Strand

The firm sand stretches away to the west here the small river comes in

It was disappointing to have to quit as there was a nice surf running

When it rapidly became clear that I could not fish we packed up and drove over to Rathlacken pier where we found two anglers who were packing up after catching ‘a few’.

The pier is worth a visit just for the local history displays.

That is Nephin in the distance

Watching pods of dolphins

So more rest and recuperation for me before I venture out again.
