Shame
I remember my dad telling me stories that he fished there in the 80s with his mate
His mate struggling to catch
Ended up hand lining my dad's leader up the wall as he tied the hooks straight to the leader because he was loosing cod

i also fished folkestone in 80s if we only knew then what we have learnt plus tackle changed for better we lost more than we caught that was part of the excitement, would do your head it working out best way to land. didnt go hungry tho as had some catches i would be proud to have today. take care tightlines to everyone
