I know we have some old ones that are much better built than the modern stuff - bet they cost a lot more than fifty quid though when they were new!!!

Change the depth your fishing at to find the fish. Got a bit hairy at times with 6ft standing waves!. You could then go into chapmans pool for a fish BBQ on the beach. Have fun but don't scare the family!

Fishing in the far North-West. Note the strategic use of a lino drop-sheet to counter the effect of fish and hooks on the hypalon.

(Sadly) No fish were harmed in the making of this photograph.....
