Been fishing for around 34 years, started after i collected 3 tokens from a rice cripys packet + £2:75 and recieved a 5ft fibreglass rod ( boy i loved that rod, cried when i broke it in the car door )
Spent many a year fishing a small stream near me with with a peacock quill.
Moved on the Carp fishing around 1978 and continued right up until a couple of years ago, Young family and the way carp fishing is going put a stop to my 48hr sessions ever week !
Gone back to my roots and find nothing better then trotting a stick float with a pin down One of the many beautiful rivers we have down South.
Mountain biking is my other passion.
