This week Josh and I went on a discovery paddle . We started from Portencross and paddle toward wee Cumbrae . It was a fair trek and we raced towards the little island . We fished close to the rock face hoping for an early pollock . The tide was unbearably low  . We visited the little castle and sampled the surrounding sceneries . It was then time to paddle back across the main chanel , and fish the rugged coast line . The weather was fine , about 8c on the day with a gentle westerly .
