A little story about my life & fishing
Hi everyone, and welcome to The Fisherman’s Friend website. Ever since the tender age of 8 I have been hooked on fishing. This passion has never abandoned me, if anything it’s only magnified. Over the years much of my experience has been gained by taking part in club matches alongside highly enjoyable weekends spent carp fishing & sea fishing.
Why You Need to Be Fishing
For me the riverbank offers sheer unadulterated escapism. Whilst many enjoy the sport with friends or family I use it as an opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle of life. The fresh air, the peace and the tranquility offers me a much needed timeout whilst focusing my mind on bettering myself. The competition element is individual for lovers of the sport. For some its about competing with others. For me it’s about self improvement and connecting with one of life’s most basic skills.
As you develop confidence in your fishing, you may decide to join a club or society, which means switching it up a gear and getting a little competitive.
On a personal note, i would go down to my local fields with my carp, course & sea rods and practise casting in to an old tyre, moving it about to get a feel for different distances, it took ages to perfect but paid of in later years when fishing close to obstacles.
I believe the best thing about fishing is that you will never forget the person or people who were with you when someone catches there first fish or there personal best.
