    Hello I'm new to WSF and this is my very first post. A little about myself... I love saltwater fishing, spending time on the ocean with my family, and good espresso. If there is anything I like almost as much as these things it would be eating fish and chips, sushi, or watching English Premier League Football. I have never been to the UK but have always been interested and fascinated with everything about its history and people. I enjoy learning about different fishing lifestyles around the world and plan to travel as much as possible when I retire. Below is a photo of our Little Captain with a decent halibut we caught last fall.

    Thank you all for being so kind and welcoming...wye me, i also enjoy rugby, but it is not broadcasted in this country very often. I really have enjoyed the many interesting cooking ideas in the cooking forum here. What a wealth of knowledge!

    Howdy Cap'n,and a big high five,from Billy.
    Strange as it may seem,but i prefer NFL,to PL footy,and have followed the Packers fortunes,
    since the eighties.Been a pretty good ride so far,but this seasons been a bit shakey,although
    they managed a good result,at the weekend.
    Just a tiny bit jelous,of your first mate though,as i still can't catch anything that size!

    Hello from Norfolk, (east of england) fishing is dire at the moment so save your money and look for a region thats fishing better. Unless you like Whiting

    Surprised to hear fishing is dire tagman... over here on the pacific side there is more rules and regulations every year, but still very productive. However the days of being able to fill a laundry basket when i was a kid are definitely long gone. I hope to see norwich promoted soon...billynobaits i used to really enjoy the nfl, i played at the college level, but it has changed for the worse in my opinion. The games last too long with all the reviews and commercials, its like watching ben hur. It seems like they have also made too many new rules that take away from all the big hits. Poor player attitudes as well.

    Welcome Captain, I've been to the States a couple of times but unfortunately never got the chance to fish whilst there. One day I will head back with my rods i hope.
    Excellent pic of Catpain Junior with the Halibut :)
