As soon as Nigel saw all the people crabbing along Brixham harbour, that is all he wanted to do yesterday …. and who were we to refuse?
We told him that he would need a lot of patience …..
….. and that he would have to sit very still in order to feel any slight movement on his line when a crab might be tempted to nibble his bait.
….. To be honest Darrell got bored before Nigel …. after a while he went wandering off to look for holey stones.
But Nigel and I sat in companionable silence for ages.
Unfortunately, the crabs weren’t biting for us,perhaps they weren’t keen on our sausages ….but to be honest if Nigel had pulled up a big crab, I think he might have wet himself!
But, Andy was fishing next to us and he was catching a lot of little wrasse
Which he was very gentle with and Nigel was able to watch and talk to in Andy’s bucket, before he put them safely back into the sea.
