I’ve been an obsessed boat angler for over 25 years. My first boat was used for pike and roach fishing on the Thames before spending many happy summers fishing for bass, mullet and flounders from an Orkney Spinner in Cornish estuaries. There is something more to fishing from a boat than just catching fish. There is nothing quite like launching at the crack of dawn on a summers morning and watching the sun rise over a flat sea as you steam out to a distant mark; nothing quite like drifting along estuaries fly casting for bass as they chase fry into the margins on a summers evening; nothing quite like coming in with the sun setting, having spent a successful and tiring day out at sea.
