“I realised that other life was in there. That’s my first memory of fishing”

“Being taken fishing by a neighbour of mine, when I was just a kid, just a nipper. And the river, to me, then was like a sheet of glass. You could see your face in it. But there wasn’t any realisation to me, that there was anything underneath that. It was just water going past. My only experience of water had been in swimming pools and such like. And this guy set me up with a rod and I caught my first ever fish, which seemed a monster to me. And that’s when I realised that other life was under there. So that’s a big memory.”
