Any member enjoy fishing
« on: Mar 17, 2020, 06:42:36 PM »
I have loved fishing since I was a young boy, used to catch minnows and sticklebacks in a local river used an old jam jar tied to the end of piece of string with old bots of bread inside, or catching Bullheads with our hands

I made a fishing road from a garden cane old boy gave some line a float and a hook , armed with a tin of worms off I would go sat for hours on the banks of the river.

Aged 10 or 11 my first fishing rod for Christmas happy days fishing in a disused stone quarry hooks were one old penny each a float 6d , I have fished many rivers and lakes all over the UK, and in the Channel, North Sea, Irish Sea off the West Coast of Ireland .

Today I still fish for Carp Bream and Tench, I will fish for as long as I am able, if I don't catch I still enjoy my day at the lake  watching the Heron other wildlife and a few peaceful hours

Great , I stopped sea fishing a few years back it was hilarious first day back at freshwater , when I cast the first time for years with a small ledger I was that used to beach casting I forgot and aimed for the horizon , nearly brained a guy on the opposite back 200 yards away
