    watching my dad tickle trout at hamsterley and learning to do it myself at about 6 years of age had me fascinated with fish. i used to fill a bucket with them show my dad them and put them back, did it every day i was there for years. at about the same time i used to visit my aunty on a weekend who lived on the headland and played out with the kids over there who took me pennicking, brilliant sport in the big rock pools. i had a glass boat and used it for a few years. i acquired a mitchell multiplier a few years later and fished on the pilot pier every sunday the only thing i can remember catching was a polywog.the women thing lasted about 10yrs and got back into it at about 19.

    My grandad was fishing mad and took me with him from an early age, I didnt see that much of him as he lived in america but we'd always go pottering about with rods on the esk or down to whitby pier when he came over. I have some fine memories of fishing in the states with him on the few times I went to visit - out on little boats on lakes and various bits of the atlantic coast and gulf of mexico.
    Didnt do alot for many years, just the occasonal chuck in the river, but reawakened my interest when I moved to cloughton about 10 years ago. As I'm now self employed I've tried to make more time to go fishing from the shore and learn some kind of improved techniques ( although that bits not worked! lol )
    I get a lot of enjoyment out of it, even though I'm useless, there can't be a finer thing to do than stand on the shore in a force nine, pissing wet through, covered in slimy bait juice, wondering if the next wave will be your last! :laugh: :laugh:
