Taste of what it’s all about

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

SO THERE I was, on hol­i­day in Por­tu­gal, wad­ing the surf and cast­ing a lure hop­ing for a bass at first light. Then my phone rang! It was TalkS­port ask­ing me about a vote on sports that were ex­cit­ing. I told them what I was do­ing and by the mir­a­cle of What­sApp I was able to record a rea­son why I found an­gling to be ex­cit­ing right there and then.

Sadly the rod didn’t wrap round, but to feel the sun rise (it was more or less be­hind me) and watch the grey sea turn turquoise while hop­ing for the surge of a bass as I stood thigh deep in the roar­ing surf wasn’t ex­actly dull!
