    I go to Scaling Dam every year around this time. Its usually when the cod drop off and before the Maccarel show up.
    I do it because I need my fishing FIX.
    I think this year however it will be different? Seeing as the Shore Cod failed to show at all and Global warming will make the maccarel probably be a different species altogether?
    Maybe genetically modified robot trout might be a good alternative?
    Ive fished at Scaling once or twice for the past 5 yrs in springtime Its a lovely day out and its fun.
    Costs about 20 quid but I think its worth it.
    Im planning on doing it this spring at least once. Has anyone else tried it? I aint got no fresh water gear I just use my spinning gear and light 8 or 10lb trace line. Most I ever caught was 4 rainbows around 1.5lb each. Great fun tho.

    Oh yeah I forgot
    The best thing about scaling is you can get a Taxi there for about 8 quid. Lovely day, nice spring sunshine. A picnic and a few beers. Between 4 of ya a great day out without worrying about driving home.
    Give it a try. I love Scaling. Its a Great days fishing.

    My Skill of blanking seems to be very evident at Scaling. 5 Outings and All I've had is 5 trout - all on the first time there. My neighbour goes all the time and catches his full bag and returns others.
