Skipper John Brittain had a familiar crew last week – Jelle and Willem Zikkenheiner, and Dominic Lautier, who have been visiting Clifden and fishing with John since the earlt 1990s. They enjoyed beautiful weather on their trip, which made for a fantastic few days fishing.

Fishing the deeper reefs offshore, Johns says there was loads of feed around, with whales, dolphins and birds all feasting. Pollack were found well up off the bottom, with full stomachs, and provided plenty of sport. Some nice cod and ling were also landed.

Even the skipper got into the fish – in his fashionable headgear!
