Any­one else want to go back to ba­sics?

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

WHEN I was younger, fish­ing was so much sim­pler.

Back in the early 1960s I used to carry all my kit with me on my bike, as we didn’t have a car.

Now, 50 odd years on, I am look­ing at start­ing fish­ing again but it seems as if I will need a large van and a bud­get of sev­eral thou­sand pounds!

Does no­body fish with a light load these days – with just a rod, a reel, a box to sit on and a few mag­gots? I hope they do, as that’s the way I’d like to go. Robert Shot­ton, email
