    To be honest, I don't think we will hear anything good now. If true that they found his jacket and trousers, I can only imagine that he fell in and took them off himself to try and stay afloat. And if he managed to get out, his dogs would have found him, or signalled him being there.
    And, knowing the kelp there, even finding him might not be on the cards. I don't say that lightly.
    Good news now would be more than a miracle. Sadly.

    no there has been no more news yet
    but as far as i no the coastguards stopped searching after
    they found some of his clothes and wallet .
    the cliffs were he fell from are upto 100 ft .
    i personaly hope his body will be recovered .
    but if the coastguards are not looking now then its only
    likely he will be found by anglers fishing in and around the area.

    All these strong offshore winds and lack of decent seas arent going to help, with regards to the sea giving him up :(

    Even when it does, the area north of hayburn is so vast with virtually no access, he may never be found :( I doubt that many anglers will be venturing up towards staintondale and rocky point now

    A tragic story and a lesson to us all.

    Not the first and probably not the last, but hopefully a warning to everyone who goes out fishing by themselves and the dangers that await anyone who takes one risk too many.

    My thoughts go out to his family.

    I fish alone pretty much all the time, so it is something I have thought about a fair bit.
    I reconciled myself with the fact I don't think I fish crazy places, and if the worst happens, at least it is doing something I love. Same as it was something Nigel loved.
    It could be a drunk guy coming the other way, or a trip down some stairs.
    Also, I have always said I wanted my ashes on Filey Brigg, so if it cuts out the middle man and saves on funeral costs for my family, so be it.
    Life is for living, and Nigel's family at least have the comfort of knowing he was doing that. And his dogs were probably all the company he needed. Or wanted. Like me with mine whilst fishing.
