    I got to the Northern end of West Lakes and decided to fish the beach nearest the sea.That was a mistake a few rises no fish and a confusing wind that made casting hard.
    So after wading and casting this beach I decided to swap sides right when the Dragon Boats were setting up for a race meeting !!!!
    Deciding quickness was better than slow and steady .I set on my way once I could get back into the water .Dodging Dragon boats sea rescue boats and kayaks!!!
    As I was casting and wading I lost four tiny Bream .
    But then wham bam

    A 26cm Bream off the surface and my new surface PB!!!
    After a chat with the locals and some dragon boat racers I was off
    And on with a smaller fish of 20cm that actually fought better .

    I borrowed a locals tiny to take the snap :)
    After that there were lots of small fish rising and I dropped a couple of fish .And of course the wind changed direction and cooled down a bit .
    That was my Sunday morning flick :)
