A view on Fishing,Community and Life on the NW coast of Scotland

Fishing is Tiring.

Another day, not so routine, as did not get down to the pier last night, being a bit knackered. That meant an hour and a half mending a fleet to take out this morning. Went out last night with Dougal and Co to see a wonderful sky.


It was changing all the time and met with Donald who is the author of most of the place names and graveyard mapping and pointed out I was spelling Caman wrong. Was a bit confused myself as I had thought that was the spelling but was confused by the place names version but think it may have been the genitive I was reading. The weather is really pleasant just now, the skies changing all the time.


Nothing to report on the fishing front as no improvement in sight and with the berried prawns coming on to the grounds the catch will be declining even further. Bit of a breeze today and was glad not at the Inn tonight. Tailing squats all the way home again today.


Reckon the Prep Room will not be saying much to me tomorrow. Homemade crab,squats and pineapple in a curried mayo for tea tonight, but that was after giving the very stinky hound, Dougal, a shower which he did not appreciate at all and seemed to resent it for quite a while after.


Wind down amusement meant reading some of the landlord submissions to the LRRG and I can only think how fortunate we are to be blessed with so many wonderful overlords who look after us so well in our wee patch of the world. It makes your heart burst with pride that, even when they do not live among us, they spend so much time on our welfare….or at least they say they do.

      He always comes round but giving him a shower is a battle. Don’t think he connects this to rolling in muck.
