    Running - as and when I need new kit, nearly always Adidas as we have a outlet shop nearby. Pay for the odd 10k run (usually about £15)
    Cycling - get a new bike every couple of years through C2W (usually near the 1k limit) plus maintenance
    Following the England cricket team abroad - just been to Sri Lanka which cost about £900 all in (happens about every 3 years)

    Cannit be arsed to work it out weekly/monthly

    Aye, but if your a fisherman and not an angler earthworms taste now't like fish especially in a nice egg ommlete if which I am sure many have partaken during survival training. The pitter patter of DMS boots never worked for me mind! :lol::lol::lol:

  4. Would love to watch England in an Ashes series over in Australia.
    Mate did all 5 tests as a retirement present to himself a few years ago and said it was worth every penny.

    Couple of guys I know managed to bag a stray Jack Russell on Dartmoor by means of a deadfall trap. Shared the meat and made a Davy Crockett stylee hat out of it's skin. Got a photo of it somewhere, I'll see if I can find it and upload it. Woof.

  14. Used to spend a fortune on base powder mixes and flavouring for my Barbel paste and boilies. One season I pre-baited a swim every week with the bait I made.
    Started the season on fire regularly catching 7 decent Barbel in a session.
    The best 14 in a morning with 2 doubles and most over 8lb.
    Otters have fucked up this stretch on the Thames.
    Need to get the time to get back into it as I miss it.

    Some nice barbel in the wear Durham way but nowt like that. David seaman loves his barbel fishing iirc. But I would imagine they get to fish some nice swims. Also you’ve hit a bit of a cord with your post. Fishing has got to be one of the most time consuming hobbies. Even sea fishing it’s rig tying, bait digging, looking after your bait, checking marks out. Casting practice. Not so much on feeding swims but when I was at the top of my game it’s all I did.

    No...para! for my sins!


    Got a mate here now who can get me white Rag! Has followed the beds for years as they move. He get's King Rag off a mate on the the dredgers and digs White rag to tip off his rigs. I have never known him not to catch even on a quiet day.

    I used to get white rag on Whitburn Beach.....years ago but god knows where the beds are now!

    The white worm is still kicking about down Whitburn. Massive tides inside the two poles against the steel. Not many. Also camels island is canny but small. I’d kill for whites Atm.

    Wild camping - far too much.

    Everyone should have a hobby. Great for the mind.
