    Hi Guys, this is quite an upsetting request to have to make, but Im wanting to write an article for this website about North East Anglers who lost their lives in persuit of the sport they loved.

    The reason ?? im not too sure, but I would like to record what happens on the coast and hopefully it could just spur a few people on to be extra safe and aware of the dangerous whilst out there on a night.

    Could people please share what they know ?? Any articles, links to forums, websites etc would be really really appreciated.

    Yes Nelson Kirk did die from a massive heart attack at the end of the east scar Redcar. Paul Short helped to carry him off I think.
