Fish supper

Nick Weston rocks. He swapped life as a city boy for life of home grown adventures. Check out his blog and feel thoroughly inspired to jack it all in and go live in a tree for a year. We particularly like his fishing tales and review of a tiny little poachers fishing rod that fits in your pocket. No better excuse to catch your supper on the way home from work.

From Nick’s blog:

Back in the day, it was pretty difficult to conceal an air rifle or full size fishing rod, especially when your main mode of transport is a mountain bike, so when it came to a visit to the water’s edge, the hand line became the weapon of choice. It was quite simply a plastic winder with line wrapped around it and float, weights and hook attached (plus spares in case of breakage) and bait (worms) could be dug up from anywhere. Concealment was easy, either under the tweed flat cap that barely left my head at that age or down the trousers. A number of times when caught and suspected of fishing, I was forced to empty my pockets and much to the landowner’s dismay, there was nothing except the usual garb that litters any boy’s pockets…
