It's something I am seriously considering. I can't however make up my mind whether to try with a 1/2 day on a boat  from Arbroath or from the rocks between Arbroath and Montrose - your advice would be appreciated.

As it's an area i have no idea about the best i can say is boat gives you a greater return for your time whereas rock/shore fishing is more challenging.
Have a look at the WSF forum http://www.worldseafishing.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=8, the lads on there in the local area will help you out.

7.2mm of rain today.
and more now...

I've been noticing your rain figure increasing this evening, and expecting it to arrive here but it seems to be slow moving. It was sunny here most of the day, the cloud didn't reach here till after 6pm, and it's still dry at gone 11pm.

Odd that your humidity is still in the sixties. When it's raining here, my humidity is usually in the very high nineties.

Still no measurable rain here yet.

I'm told there was a very light fall at some time in the night (I see Alan at Carbost registered 0.2mm, which would be too little to register here[1]).


[1] But when I was in Dingwall the other day I spotted a nice big funnel that when fitted should get me to 0.25mm resolution - which is probably the limit if I want to avoid swamping the gauge on occasions.

Which reminds me, I wonder how Bashy[2] is getting on with his 0.1mm mod!

[2] Who will be well know to those who read the Weather-Watch.com Forum.  Smiley
