A fabulous quote from our friend Jason Strong and his fishing mates.

“The gods do not deduct from mans allotted span for the time spent fishing”

Of course Jason and his mates have added a sub clause to include time spent talking about fishing, driving to fishing, time in the fishing shop and so on just to see if they can make it add up to 148 years old!!
