Three things you should know; I know the picture is nothing whatsoever to do with fishing. This piece has nothing whatsoever to do with fishing, any fishing featured is incidental. I have absolutely no interest in fishing.
The Marks in the title isn’t the name of a person; it’s Local Marks, places to go fishing.
Quite a few months ago now, I was on one of my morning walks, and got to the end of the Haslar Marina Pier Wall.. There was a young chap there with a fair bit of fishing kit, clearly set up for a long session. He also had a battery attached to a camera for long duration filming. At first I thought he was doing a facebook live. Turns out he was live on you tube. We had quite a good chat, and I asked him what his YouTube channel was called. He replied “Local Marks Fishing”.
For quite a while I assumed his name was Mark, but then I watched one of his shows, and he said something that suddenly made me realise that his name wasn’t Mark. So, the next time I saw him, I asked. His name is John.
Earlier on, I said I have no interest in fishing, so why on earth am I watching a programme about fishing? Well, actually, he’s quite entertaining, and I can have it on in the background (no offence intended John, keep doing it).
Anyhow. You might have experience the storm that happened in the early hours of Tuesday Morning. John was out in it. Here’s his video. It’s over two hours long. For the piece about the storm, you need to scroll forward to about one hour 20 minutes – or you could watch the whole thing. I will only give one warning; The language can be a bit ripe. it just adds to the effect. Enjoy.
