IMPORTANT. on booking the whole boat, we are coded for 10 places which has to be covered, it means what it says not expecting to pay for 6 places when your mates let YOU down.Organisers of trips please be aware best to collect all funds before sail date to protect the others in case of let downs, responsibility is the group who have booked not the skippers.

If you have a certain day or date in mind or wish to target a certain species we will make up trip for you will even try add people from our own database so you dont have to book the whole boat. Best to talk about your day first to make sure you pick the right tide for best fishing for what you want to do.

Please bear in mind boat bookings ten places have to be covered financially up to you how many people you have onboard up to ten which will split the cost. This however gives you control over departing and returning times to suit yourself.

Self employed or company corporate days why not ask for written receipt as fully tax deductable.

We do from time to time television work/surveys, sonar towing, item recovery, involved in bird and seal survey if we can help we will. Unfortunately this new vessel is not suitable for diving.

    We managed to get out between bad weather days. Fishing a bit slow to start but after a couple of moves things picked up and everyone was catching. A lot of whiting four Thornbacks 3 returned and a few spotty dogs.. Jon sorted out a couple of the lads who were.feeling a bit queezy and I think everyone came home happy. Plenty of hot drinks and banter as usual. Well done Jon

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks John was worried for a bit then they came on, funny time of year! Pray for cod!!!Cheers mate

    Apologies to everyone since losing my Hayley to cancer things on here have gone haywire as she used to upload pictures etc for me , been keeping myself busy revamping another charter boat called Seaquest which is now ready to run alongside High Flyer 2 this was a Yarmouth boat all its life built local as well skipper/owner has retired so now all revamped and modernised ready to go. Had our best tope to date this year as featured in Saltwater Boat Angling of 60lb ,alot of 55lb this year so very pleased with that. Our bass seems to be improving this year biggest only 9lb though but plenty in the 6/7 lb mark. Smoothounds were poor this year i felt couldnt get a peeler crab or hermit for love of money very strange . Hoping we get a cold winter for a change to bring a few cod in need that water temperature down do us all a favour. Would like to thank everyone for there continued support we ran out at a loss with covid for months didnt increase our fees and still normal trip £50 everything supplied . Everything has gone up fuel especially, our insurance and toll fees plus baits like lug £24 per 100 so due to all the letdowns who book a place and dont turn up or 9pm on a friday night come up with excuse we are going to enforce the Paypal deposit system on here of £20 per head and rest on the day shame on all the reliable people out there for which i feel sorry.

    So few weekend dates left up to xmas for winter fishing hope we see a cod or two, get your name down to avoid disappointment will be booking up those tope dates for next year on them special tides a long way off but days have gone already well done to those who think ahead. Look forward to being of service until then tight lines to you all.
    Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Well it looks like March 29th is the go ahead then start of full moon so a week of strong tides so will have to see what winds doing as to where we fish. As everyone is itching to go and numbers limited to 6 for couple months we will have to do it on first come first serve basis so will take bookings from the monday 29th March. To be honest its not cost effective running out with 6 anglers on £50 a head so please bring your own worms should you wish to use them at £22 per 100 now just cant justify it. We will still supply all our usual baits, refreshments etc. Look forward to being of service lets get this covid done with and get back to a normal life.
    Cheers Jon High Flyer 2

    Well close of another year been worst i have ever know firstly losing my beautiful Hayley only 51 years old to cancer in March words fail me to describe in writing how the loss feels , would like to express firstly my thanks to Martin Bishop for standing in and skippering throughout Hayleys treatment etc without him i would have closed the charters very much appreciated by myself and all who came on trips throughout that period. Secondly a big thank you to all the regulars on High Flyer 2 you know who you all are without your constant support we couldnt operate you all know how expensive it is to maintain a charter vessel, i feel we all have a great relationship onboard with constant banter back and forth despite hard fishing days mixed in with the good ones but as serious anglers we all understand our sport. As you know we have had to cancel trips this xmas till further notice law is one angler and the skipper which is ridiculous unless you feel flush give me a call!!!
    As from next year i can confirm i have purchased local charter vessel Seaquest which will be going under few alterations to suit ourselves early in new year hopefully so will be running the two vessels giving different fishing options to suit budgets etc.
    Will be concentrating next year on the summer tope as very popular already the upgraded reels and rods have arrived so looking forward to that, do get your name down on those tope tides well in advance.
    So just leaves me to say happy new year to you all, can only get better stay safe everyone look forward to when we can go again .
    All the best
    Jon (High Flyer 2)
