I have noticed on other chat forums there is usually a thread for newcomers to introduce themselves. I've not come across one on here so thought I would start one.

I came across your site trhough word of mouth and thought i'd have a quick look and be done with it. However after spending less than a minute on here it immediately appealed to me and the administrators must be congatulated it is a wonderful site.

I have done a little bit of comercial fishing but have since retired from the industry, it being very much a young man's game. I have recognised a few of the names on here, (and boats) and look forward to swapping yarns with them as time goes by (the people, not the boats)

My chosen fishing was crabbing, although I have done a very little trawling. I have fished in the North sea, the North Atlantic, the English Channel and local Jersey waters.

Will learn my way around the forum and look forward to posting some more shortly. Once again congratulations on a wonderful site and a fantastic trip down memory lane.

Welcome Andy,
The site is fairly easy to navigate & most of it is self-explanatory. Hope you enjoy it. It's a bit addictive :D
