Going fishing

We’ve all seen them at the sea side, in all weathers, throwing their lines out into the blue, well I thought I better get out there and see what it’s all about. So I borrowed a rod, and headed out sea angling off the North Norfolk coast. I may have failed to check the tide, and the weather forecast, and ended up soaking wet with not a tiddler to write home about, but being an outdoorsy type I had a great time and came home feeling refreshed and alive. However I know that some people don’t get the appeal. So what is it that attracts so many people to recreational sea angling?
