My wife and I are beginners really but in Norway we had such fun and success catching Cod, Coley and Pollack from the piers that we have really caught the bug! We have discovered the pleasure in cooking and eating 'really fresh' fish We only 'spin' at the moment and wonder if we would get bored with float/bait fishing. Quite fancy fly fishing but that looks like another (expensive?) story! Anyone know of any good places to fish on the West coast of Scotland?
