How much do you spend on hobbies?

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.


I have always found it to be killer bait and not much required used it with mussel, razor-fish, spratlings, and lug. Amazing with most fish for some reason, mind a bootie mate of mine told me to try boilies for bass and I thought he was taking the

piss, tried it and worked, seems it is local to the area he told me to try mind. They still love the peeler crab as bait up in the Northern waters?

Following on from the other “look at me” threads. Got me thinking what do I spend most of my money on.

Fishing is the answer.
At least £50 a week in bait and Comp fees.

The biggest single item being £3k fishing pole.
Rods for £500
Reels £200 ish
I may even have a count up later of stuff I have (they have their own house)

So may rainy day question is what’s your hobby and how much does it cost. I think a lot of people will get a shock when they start adding it up.
Haha , after a 20yr break , my grandkids have got me fishing again , was heavily into match fishing back in the day , won a lot of open matches , fished div1 nationals winter league semis etc , now its a whole new world with these commercial fisheries , am catching more in a single session than i would catch in a whole season. Dunno whether i will get back into matches or not , at least am not going out in this shit weather pleasure fishing , managed to find a decent second hand pole for £500 , bargain , add all the rest ( poles,rods,reels,boxes. for grandkids)and I have spent a fortune last 3 months, xmas present sorted , my daughters are buying me that "Gizmo ZT Hooktyer) the new light one £55.

Wow nice. Pics?
