    Hello fellow fishing folk.

    Just returned from a quick trip up north, it was only a short trip but managed to squeeze 2 fishing sessions in, met up with Uncle Jim from Dundee. Well managed to find a fair few cod to just over 6lb but just the one fish for Uncle Jim in the shape of a 5lb 8oz Pollack. Best of all we were treated to a spectacular display of the Northern Lights.

    Not the most productive session I've had but a very enjoyable one given conditions were far from ideal..

    Took a few pics..

    Well done Gary. Jimmy was telling me all about it today and it sounds you guys had a great time. We had a spectacular show of the lights up here in the Orkney's, but would rather had been out with you guys.
