Thread: Goosebumps

  1. #1


    If you've read the story by John Jones and don't have a lump in your throat then I wonder how human you really are.

    I must confess to having goosebumps near the end when remembering my own start off and entry into such a passionate past time. I came from tough and broken home myself and relate to much of the story.

    How wonderful and how lucky we all are these days.

    Absolutely superb.

    Dead right Stuart. I think it's this type of article that sets Fishingmagic apart from most other fishing media.

    I'm not meaning this to be a plug for FM, but really, where else could you read something like this?

    Maybe in Waterlog to some extent, but that's about it.

    Yes, you realise we are lucky when you read it, but unlucky in that you could read more of this type of article in those days.

    Nice article John, brings back quite a few memories. Sometimes you canít pay back those who have helped you along the way but I think you do that by helping others. Youíre right Graham there are few places now where you can read this type of storey? I hope its just for commercial reasons and not that the modern angler is loosing their humanity and ability to enjoy what nature provides free of charge.

    Great article John, very enjoyable.
    Takes me back to my start which was much the same... not to far away either it was the Bham/Fazeley canal.
    Hope you and Phil get your day out on the Avon soon!

    I have frequented the Tower Ballroom at Edgbaston a few times too...but enough said about that!

    GREAT!, and I must be human after all, I've a lump in my throat the size of a football. Very touching, and more proof if it was needed as to how fishing can change peoples lives.
