Some fishermen are more successful than others

Earlier today Rod declared these inner fjords to be free from fish having dangled some plastic sand eels over the side for 10 minutes and then given up. Odd then that a big fat and obviously well nourished seal swam around our boat at Harefjord! Maybe the seal was a vegetarian? Even odder then that I should hear the distinctive warble of a distant diver and then witness the majestic Great Northern Diver prove beyond all doubt that there are fish down there. This beautiful bird dived 50 metres from the boat and when he surfaced we all saw the fish in its bill. As soon as he had swallowed his prey he was off on a fast purposeful flight back to his nest.

So Rod, no excuses now. There are fish down there.
