    Nice fish Matty, it's almost 5 years since I caught my 1 and only double but I remember it like it was yesterday.

    After I landed it (it was dark, 5am 28 December 09) I kept looking at it and my mind was playing tricks cos every time I looked it seemed bigger than when I last looked lol.

    I'm sure you will remember yours for some time to come, it's probably fired you up for the rest of the winter as well to look for another.

    Tight lines

    Weird that Tony, I kept having a look at it every time I moved my bag and it looked bigger every time! Then when I got it out the fridge this morning it looked even bigger.

    Look what santa brought me :-D

    Well done - a proper cod there!

    I'd be capped with a fish like that on my boat, never mind the shore.

    Bet you'll have another soon, its the way it often goes!

    Welcome to the club matty awesome catch.
    And many more for the future. Good feeling knowing you've had that special double figure fish and you keep going back to look at it. It's something you will never forget. My first double I had a bag for the fish but I held it and walked past my car proudly holding it by it's tail all the way to Whitby tackle shop. The ord fella in there put it up on the shop scales which where attached to the ceiling and when he told me ten pound four ounces I nearly wet meself. I celebrated that cold May morning with a full English in bills cafe next door with a full slap up English And I remember listening to the trawler men sat moaning about no fish so I invited them outside to look at my catch and was amazed as they patted me on the back telling me how rare even off a trawler.
    Twenty years ago that and I've had a good few since but none better than the first.
