Another great weekend away with the Mariners club to Belmullet this weekend with 18 anglers heading to west Mayo to the stunning Erris coast with miles of big surf beaches and sheltered coves giving plenty of choice for venues. Great weather and some fantastic fish and plenty of craic. We are looking forward to a return next year again.

Cups of tea to the sounds of the Atlantic surf it’s days like these that make it a great way of life enjoying this sport.
