This evening it was back to the Southport Seaway again with the Talon Midgar 15footer 10/11w weight Double Hander.
The huge swell had dropped thanks to the Westerly wind however there was the so called rogue wave came on in.
Low tide made fly fishing difficult to say the least as this exposes the lower wall rocks, the rocks that steal to many flies and leaders.
Nothing, not even a fish, not even a couple of bait fish, not even a bird, the area as far as the eye could see that dead, nothing, with water as good looking as this evening coupled with the rip running out past the rocks, surely there must be a big fish looking for a meal, but nothing !
Then when it was dark, some how as I was retriving the fly through the rocks a wave came rolling in, the sure sign to losing a fly, but worse, my shooting head and running line appeared to be fouled up out there in the dark, so there was only one thing left to do, start pulling and seeing what would be left, to be replaced.
In came my Talon Advanced running line with the outter skin ripped up, and then to my surprise in came the Head, now I was real lucky, I only had to cut back the running line and reform the loop.
A beautiful Autumn evening as the sun goes down.
