Something about a Church and Fishers of Men, now becomes Fishers of Fish. Come on Rev.Long, sort this out for me.

St Paul's if I remember it correctly. Fond memories of the youth club in the school at the rear of the church, back in the early Sixties. Had my first ride on a BSA Bantam round the school yard, been hooked ever since. Very happy memories from a simple picture, thanks, Mick. PS Anyone else think fishing has become ever so complicated?
