Where I stayed
Todays the day all you Reg Fans have
been waiting for.
He Finally got out his fishing gear .
about time too. you must be thinking. His suitcase weighs a ton with
all his fishing stuff. We went down to the Nags Head fishing pier
after breakfast he was like a pig in muck. He spent the day
discussing bait & fishing tackle. Bet you are all dying to know
if he caught anything!!!! Well cometh the hour cometh the man &
he was THE MAIN MAN
asked him to get them off the hooks called him Buddy !!!!
It was cooler today with a nice breeze
blowing so more comfortable we stayed until after 4:00 pm.
Reg- it was that much cooler, Sylv got
To the fishing- the line hadn't been in
the water a minute, when tip of rod went with a bang. The first of 3
sting rays! Admittedly quite quite small (see photos). Then I had
three or four thornback rays. Most of the other people around where
catching sea mullet. The flesh of which is similar to whiting. I did
manage to catch one during the day, but that and all the other fish
went back in to provide sport for another day. The best part of the
day was just before 4..pm when I got another strike, only this time
it was stripping line off the reel at an alarming rate
reeling in the rod was bent well over, but all of a sudden it went
slack-damn and blast-I'd lost it, in fact the hook had straightened
out quite a bit. Ah well ,there's always Hatteras Island next week,
if the other half lets me. All in all, not a bad day.
Anyone spot the Chris Rea Tee Shirt that came out of storage
for this trip. It is now his no 1 lucky fishing tee shirt. Yes I do
look like a lobster [what women do for love] Reg is insistent that
I get a hat ugh ugh ugh !!!!! . Definitely no photos of me
