    Phil Arnott :sleepy: It was me who told him not to post his $hite on here. Best thing I ever did as he never came back. When I see people like him complaining about people publicising marks, killing fish etc etc, it just makes me all the more determined to do the very thing that winds them up so much.

    Its the one thing that sets this site apart from many of the others. We actually catch fish in some of the most awesome locations you will find anywhere in the UK. Where else do you see people fishing off the top of cliffs like this ? This is our heritage, and we are proud of it. Live life to the max, Many anglers fished those cliffs before we even heard of them and many will continue to fish them long after our bones are in the ground or our ashes in the sea. Long may it continue !!

    Sandsends nice too

    Well said Glenn :yes:

    Dave you could have broken your leg anywhere with a lot easier access where we fish :yes: you didnt just break it because it was down bempton !!

    Tha fact you got yourself out of that situation without risking the emergency services is a big credit to yourself

    No doubt the "wrap in cotton wool " health and safety brigade will have enjoyed jumping on that bandwagon :crazy: :crazy:

    It still wont stop us enjoying proper yorkshire rock angling !! climbing up and down ropes in the dark and wet :happy:

    Would you have it any other way. If angling was about strolling onto a pier or onto a shingle beach then id wrap in instantly. Fair enough if your getting on a bit or your disabled. But Fishing for me is about the challenge of the environment. Bloody hell look at whacker, hes 99 and still climbing Hawsker. Folks need to raise their bar a little and look at anglers like that. whats up with people these days ?

    I love cliff fishing, be it Bemmo, Flamborough or sandsend, I never think of the risks involved TBH, I am always very carefull but think the risks are equally as high fishing other locations, infact i feel more uneasy fishing the scaur type marks on the flood, where flood surges can definatly be squeeky bum moment. One thing i will say is that it is a cracking idea to fish the higher cliff marks with someone experienced when fishing cliffs for the first time, I was lucky enough to be shown the basics by Quint.

    I will be up Bemmo on the 1st along with everyone else who loves it up there, hopefully filling a fishbag or 2...............

    Well said my Yorkshire cousins :laugh:

    And those nasty rock falls which "wipe out" marks on the tops are much safer when fished from sea level :laugh:

    Fishing should be an adventure, taking in all around. Its not just about catching fish all the time, many times on an early morning trip down Hummersea, you are greeted by a pair of deer, which you can get quite close to, before they move on. There are not many places like that around.
    Cheers Col.

    foo You've gotta be in it to win it.

    Fair play to you lads, I admire your commitment and love reading your reports of "Real Fishing", I also love fishing the scarrs and storm beaches, however, we must not overlook the fact the piers and jetties,( easy marks if you want to call them that), are some of the most consistently productive big fish marks in the region in the right conditions and I certainly do not believe they are the domain of the elderly or infirm.

    Yeah the piers and beaches do have some good fishing. Infact whitby west is amazing in a big north westerly. But then you have to contend with a hundred people all wanting to fish the same place. People using plain leads in 15ft of swell. People with the maddest casting styles trying to kill you. People saying oh you can't fish there mate we been here since dinner time.

    I like the pier but only go there when were snowed in at whitby and most people can't get here.

    Give me a cliff ledge any day.
