Having only recently found out the pleasure myself at a late age ever since I have been telling my three grandsons just how enjoyable it is.
Well this week I actually managed to get one of them who is 15 to come with me.
It really was a case of the blind leading the blind given how little I know about fishing but with my instruction he soon was tackled up and ready to float fish and his first cast.

Long story short within four hours he caught 19 fish Bream, and a 5ib Common Carp and just like them he now seems to be hooked and cannot wait for us to go again.


I just hope that it becomes a love time passion for him as I now realise how much I wished I had taken it up sooner.


Guess I know what he will be getting from us at Christmas then !
