Fishing was the done thing around our way for boys from the age of about 10 to the day you find either beer, girls or drugs. I kinda found all three things at once and fishing along with all other sports I was interested in went well and truely out of the window. Although I do recall a couple of fishing sessions in the latter part of my fishing career when I was about 16 involving all three. Oh and with a bit of Top Buzz or Graeme Parks blasting away on the portable stereo! I don’t think I could sort myself out a lift or something to a party so thought I’d go to a nice quite place, out the way with my girl at the time to get wasted and get upto some other interesting things that teenage couples did out of their parents suspicous annoying eyesight.
