It’s true that I’ve fished for about as long as I can remember. My very earliest memories were fishing for newts near our house in Crowborough, East Sussex. I must have been maybe 6 or 7 years old and it was around 1978 I guess. We used nets and marvelled at how we could capture these things that you wouldn’t usually see ‘above ground’. They were like from another world. You could discover and expose something that your average person would just walk passed, without even knowing it was there.
