I got into fishing during my early teens, the Stourbridge Canal being only a few hundred yards from home. These days, we have a coppice at the end of our garden and then the Basingstoke Canal. Fishing, for me, has always proved a great relaxation. I can be happy fishing or simply watching the wildlife that abounds around rivers and canals. An absorbing fascination takes over whether or not I'm actually catching anything. I've included a few photos beneath, including a DHSS HQ Angling Club annual awards presentation at the Hand in Hand pub that features in 'The Cat's Whiskers' anecdote of The 3S's.
