September last year at Shackerstone and a little 2lb jack I caught in October spinning.

My first ever fishing trip, armed with a long pole of bamboo, accompanying one of my father's work man was 40 yds from this very spot!!
(The other side of the bridge Mark)
Only 30 plus years ago.

Didn't catch much, some things remain the same.

Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
