Like i say ive fished with our Mark since being Kids, he's more like a Brother, im made up for him as he's done about a 100 hours down the Trent without a Barbel, so to get that today will have made him Happy.

One of my best mates at secondary school was my fishing buddy while at school. When we left school we lost contact (didn't have mobile phones then).
Fou d out via my sister that he committed suicide a few years back.
He was a cracking angler, I swear he could catch fish out of a puddle if he tried.
Fond memories.

I would love another session with Gren, but I have not seen him in 40 years. I still have a couple of tales when I get a minute.
