Thread: Why is it that old Interests take hold of you again?

  1. #1

    Why is it that old Interests take hold of you again?

    In 2007 I quit Sea Angling at that point i had 30 odd years at it and had enough.

    last year The lads at work booked a trip with a local skipper Erik Elliot.

    They had booked trips with every Tom, Dick and Harry, hoping I would go with them. I always said politely "No, but if you book a trip with Erik count me in" So they did. I was instantly re hooked.

    Then last evening I tock my son out to a pier for a quick session before his bed. He loved it.

    Has this Happened to you?

    I think it hard not to be drawn back after 30 odd years or so to something you obviously have a passion for.

    I myself was a keen trout angler years back and can reflect on many a memorable evening spent on the river.

    So I wish you and the lad "Tight Lines".

    Thanks Buck.
    It looks like my wife will be a fishing widow.

    I must admit that it was after the fishing that stalking took my interest. Now. With making stocks taking much of the time up. The relative non expense of a couple of hours on town quay in an evening with the lad seems very tempting . When I think about it those 30 years spent hunting bass and flounder in the Solent mean I only spend about 2 hours out.


    This feels like the ex you never get over.

    salmon fishing January to November, trout March to October, game shooting August to January, stalking 12 months of the year...

    See how they are all meant to fit nicely in and around one another? Not a single month to be bored...

    Like many on here my other interests have included salmon fishing, fly tying and various types of shooting but one particular old interest which has been reignited is ferreting.

    Many things have lapsed for a while or taken a back seat as life gently meanders on but having children is a good excuse to go back to childhood pastimes and ferreting is one I'm really enioying & glad to have found again.
