Thanks 12Bore, looking at the tides towards the end of next week is looking good.

As a rule of thumb when the swallows arrive to start & when they leave to end.

Went out for a sail on Sunday 18th May was towing a paravane on a handline with feathers and spiner caught a single eating size Makkie.

RATE THIS BIT OF KIT - as the boat moves forward the angled plastic wedge shaped vane dives down deep into the sea - best thing is once you've hooked a fish the vane inverts and comes to the surface indicating a catch.

Well, they're here on the Gower. Some massive specimens as well - three bruisers went over 14 inches

Been a terrible year for them here in SW Wales.

They're about across the channel from you NB. Smaller than last year.
