About

The journey began.......

18 years commuting to the city of London, initially from my hometown of Benfleet in Essex, and then later from my current home of Brighton in East Sussex, was spent wishing I had more time to be fishing, which occupied every second I was not working, and perhaps far too many seconds when I was. And pretty much had done since my father first took me around my 6th birthday, to the cost of school, work, relationships. The obsession is akin to an illness perhaps. So, when redundancy loomed, the lure of the sea became too much... I put my hand up, and bit the bullet........ The right decision, for happiness, if not for wealth.......

The journey evolves.........

Celebrating my 11th year of taking people to the fish for money in 2016, and proud to have created a business that began with perhaps four clients a month, to sometimes three sessions a day. Fishing for anything and everything, if I feel I can meet a clients expectations, this has led to the new venture for 2017, Fishyrob Afloat, and expansion of the foreign trips, with Fishyrob Abroad. And excited about every second of every day. The enthusiasm for seeing big smiles on clients faces has never been stronger. Please, god, may I never retire. Something I never thought I would say, back in the days of the 06:57 to London Victoria...
