Enjoy Your Fishing. Remember as always:

 

"Tight Lines, may your next bite be a big one or anyone big or small"

 

Always great to catch a big one but don't forget called fishing not catching. Not about catching the most or the biggest, sometimes you will blank. The most important thing is your out on the bank. A bad days fishing is better than a good day at work.

 

Look forward to many more angling adventures...

 

Take good care, be safe cu on bank soon, may all your Fishes Come True Shaun 👍🙃🎣

A Father and Son Moment

Posted on 9th March, 2020

A Father and Son Moment River Great Ouse, Great Barford, Bedfordshire 18 Aug 18. LAA London Anglers Association Roxton, Section A

 

Good Morning Folks,

 

Thanks for so many messages over the weekend sorry The City Of Cardiff was cancelled last minute this weekend. Just returned from seeing Dad and The Family. Don't wish to say to much right now on Facebook apart from Family before Fishing.

 

Dad Love You more than you will ever know. He has been more a Friend in recent years although still a Father. There through thick and thin. No one has ever been so proud of my achievement's, at the same time let down by my unsuccessful moments. A Proud Dad who first introduced to fishing 46 years ago so happy of my angling achievements, at the same time unhappy didn't take early childhood match winning successes much further. He wanted more much more can still see him now sat behind me shouting and cursing for missing a bite losing matches by mere ounces. Still not sure who felt the pain of losing more me or Dad. He put everything into my love of fishing from bait to the hook used, rods, reels even my day tickets, club memberships, including the fuel money to get to matches. He supported so much that I owe him every compliment for how he sponsored all the way.

 

And so it was after winning 16 trophies one season to virtually giving up serious match fishing the following season, didn't just let myself down let him down big time ! Something regretted my life ever since. However as ever A Great Father he was there for me and proud when passed out of basic training at Pirbright Guards Depot in The Army. Proud of my Marathon running achievements, passing paramedic qualifications, becoming a London Bus Driver and especially proud of my harmonica playing although sadly never got to see play live on stage only on YouTube. Not forgetting my horticultural career, and education. He has really been my Number One Mainstay in Life that's kept me on the straight and narrow. Most of my life achievements have come through shear determination. Proud to say Dad is My Number One Inspiration. For the record Dad was also the man behind my recent Mission to Catch A Fish From All 33 London Authorities in a year. Although had loads of followers and support at the time it was Dad who kept my feet on the floor and ensured I remained level headed. Owe so much of my life to Dad. Pray for His health as I did today first time visited church in years. Know we will never get to fish together again after thousands of hours spent on the bank. However pray he returns home soon. Love you Dad and always will promise to remain strong and dedicate my future angling quests to you. May not have reached the ranks of a top professional match angler, know in hindsight should have continued down that path. However thankful for absolutely everything you taught me especially the best pastime could ever have asked for Angling as such now dedicate this blog and my future fishing achievement's to You. Love Your Son and Friend Shaun xxx

Welcome to Angling With Shaun

Welcome to My New Website

Hi something been meaning to do for a long time now especially as take on more along with Social Events, Friendly Fishing Matches, Charity Events, Fundraising and especially future Angling Coaching.

 

Also felt a little upset when a recent post of a pike pinned to the top of my Facebook got removed. It was then decided enough was enough !

 

PLEASE NOTE WILL NOT BE REJECTING FACEBOOK PAGE AND THE MANY WHO HAVE LIKED FOLLOWED. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT SHAUN.

 

28/02/20: Hi Folks Facebook are messing about again have removed my pike post which was pinned to top of page. Remember the days when Facebook was a great platform now it only seems to benefit paid pages or adverts. Us little Guys don't stand a chance. Most recently some may remember they took my pages out of search one had to scroll down page to a post to click on page, now they have this habit of removing posts and interfering with peoples pages. In all honesty used to love Facebook, more and more people are leaving in droves, many speak to don't even use this social media site. Sadly come to the conclusion need to set up own website or focus on blogger far more as this site becomes ever more frustrating on a daily basis, when one can't even control what they post or what posts remain on their wall. Not saying leaving but not saying happy with this platform either. Sadly Facebook seems to think us little people who share content can be controlled and manipulated. Unfortunately for them, it's us little people who make up the bigger more read worthy material, yet Facebook fails to recognize this. So for now until Facebook sorts it's act out, it's time to say goodbye temporarily. In the meantime you can find on blogger. Hopefully they will stop messing my page about and also allow more people to see page not just a paid audience which seems to be the way Facebook is going... Goodnight and Goodbye for now Shaun

 

Although now have lot's more updating to do will still continue to add important trips out to Blogger: https://anglingwithshaun.blogspot.com/
