Fish­er­man Orig­i­nal 1980 – Re­union Septem­ber 2011

David Gib­bons was pho­tographed fish­ing on the banks of the River Nene in Peter­bor­ough in 1980. More than 30 years later, in 2011, he re­turned to the river with his son Martin for a re­union pic­ture. The pair go to Cais­tor, Lin­colnshire, ev­ery year on a fish­ing day, a tra­di­tion that has taken place in their fam­ily for the last 100 years.

David is now semi-re­tired and works part-time as a me­chanic on a golf course look­ing after the mow­ers.

He said: “I had no idea my photo had been taken but I used to love fish­ing and went ev­ery week. There were a lot more fish in the river then com­pared to now.”
