My trials and tribulations after 10 years off
Its been some time coming but I had to get back into it, Driving past rivers and lakes for the best part of 10 years reading the Angling Press and listening to Fisherman's Blues, has finally made me think. There's fish in that there water.
SO LETS DOOOOOOEEEET
Over those years I have watched the progress of many old friends from within the sport I have never missed a copy of the mail or times, I have also seen like myself many disappear off the scene, some very old clubs / teams just vanish, teams like Essex County ( The Rainbow Warriors ) and my old gangs Defiant Mobile. and Trevs. a big part of my Angling history has vanished.
The introduction of fishing forums pretty much swung it for me and you have that little ugly bloke Les Woodmouse to thank for my return as if it wasn't for his charity auction that I won I can honestly say I would not have bothered.
Thanks to all the guys that have helped me along the way the list is endless but you all know who you are.
And the title of my blog well that comes from the early editions of Match fishing Magazine where David Hall used the words from a very funny guy and old friend of mine Cliff Hunt who wrote the Life at the Bottom Column,
So Bottoms up chaps I hope you enjoy my adventure
