That certainly does seem to be a watchful eye. Was it looking at you?

Think so Newt. I often see this one, sometimes two at Sandwich where I fish mostly these days. Unpredictable as to the timings and tides. I have got a couple of shots at different times, but am determined to get a good "close up" or at least within 20 yards or so :)

 

Twice this one has popped his head and shoulders up less than 15 yards out in front of me, both times while I was in midcast waiting for the lead to land.............camera in tackle box. So I wait with camera on lap and the seal doesn't appear, several hours and then I get this little peeping at me chance :) Seal def saying "I see you Sir" me def saying "gotcha"

 

Great fun :)

Difficult things to get a decent shot of ,two at folkestone were either tiny dots on the horizon or cleverly submerged when you hit the button on full zoom and you lose them

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

..........both times while I was in midcast waiting for the lead to land.............

How long does that take? Don't know anything about sea fishing so I guessed at 5 seconds which doesn't seem much but for a lead to be in the air for that long is an enormous amount of time and distance.

It's never a 'six', let's put it back

Never timed it Rusty, but ,say 3 secs in the air after spotting the Seal, then got to get to tripod and set rod in, run up beach to tackle box above high tide line, get camera out and cap off, switch on, zoom out and find Seal in EVF....just in time to see it sink back below the surface :)

 

I have then been known to try to run a 100yds along the beach hoping Seal pops up again. Damned hard work this beach fishing lark :)..Real bonus is the bird hide about 1/2 mile away, with all sorts of ducks and waders and other stuff to look at and photograph.

 

 

here is one that pleased me..
