Yup me and my mates used to go fishing around that area its a lovely place
I liked the mull of Galloway, saw the biggest basking shark there fantastic sight, The local police used to wave to us when they passed, and it is a verry good idea to take fishing rods with you even if you dont fish you get the idea behind that thought i am sure,;)

There are two bays one left one right yes the farmer will let you on as you say for a small fee, if my memory serves me well those bays are called west tarbet and east tarbet and i may have the spelling wrong, spent many a weekend there and we were catching loads of fish all sorts of different types
oh the good old days i miss them so much.:(

No i am always to busy in spring and summer, in winter i just cant cope with the cold anymore due arthritis, other wise i would have been still fishing now we use ton have a boat on the river Tyne so we did a lot of boat fishing, had some really good sesions cod fishing, and another thing that puts me off is the depletion of fish stocks:confused: so its just not the same as all those years ago.

REGARDS Trev.

I have fished Loch Ryan years ago it had the record for the biggest ray near three old concrete barges off the war, used to be able to drive along on to the sea front there, and i dont realy want to say this but there was a couple murderd in a camper van there, jealous hubby i think it was. dont worry it was a long time ago and the access was closed after that.
