Well, I'm 64 years old and been fishing for 54 of them. I used to work for Dick Clegg in his fishing tackle shop and the last time I was on Fishsim was approx 8 or 9 years ago. I make my own floats and inline carp leads plus other little bits and bobs. Me and Wifey moved from South Yorkshire to West Yorkshire 3 years ago to look after wifey's mum and found a few great fishing places round here.
I'm an active member of South Kirkby Colliery AC which has fantastic waters and go there when time allows, I also go to Hemsworth water park going after the carp (had some nice bream out...but no carp) :(
I still fish the odd 'marathon' session for charity, by marathon I mean fishing for 48 hours non-stop, no sleep, although I do this now for only 3 times a year due to age catching up with me. The last one I did was for Yorkshire Air Ambulance raising £725.
I think that just about covers it.
See you on the forum. ;)
