Somewhere in the Hebrides? Equidistant from a fish and a wee tint of Macallan or Glenmorangie or Laphroaig or. . .

Clue: An International Location

Boston Harbor! To be more precise, Logan International Airport. The surroundings have been altered by Paint Shop Pro. :D:D

O.K. Runner up prize to Capt. Ray for most original reply :D

Nearest prize goes to Broadbill for at least getting the correct continent:)

Its Saunton Sands, an Atlantic beach in North Devon in the South West of England. About three miles from where I grew up and used to bait fish in the summer months. This is a very tough beach to fish since the structure is very subtle - no well defined holes or rocks - but there are spots where local fishermen would always head for. Away in the far distance, to the left, lies the combined estuaries of the rivers Taw and Torridge. Both once good Atlantic Salmon and Sea Run Brown fisheries, trying real hard to recover. I haven't fly fished this beach yet but its on my list of must-do things. A nightime foray could be very interesting.
