Bass (Dicentrachus labrax) and was keen to show it to me as I was the first person he'd seen. Clearly he had to tell someone - I guess if I'd just seen a Great Black-headed Gull, perhaps I'd have been the same! He said it was the largest he'd ever caught in many years trudging out in all weathers onto Margam Sands and caught it off the beach just south of the Long Arm. I'm no ofishionado (sorry) of marine life, but I was impressed by this fish. Using my binoculars for scale I've calculated it to be 67cm long. Not having a clue about fishing I'd be interested to know if this is as unusual as he made out?
