Great pictures. Bet you have some great tales to tell about Whitby Salmon and Sea-Trout. Reply Jane devon December 3, 2011 at 4:35 pm Great to see Bob is still going strong. We used to live in Whitby and Bob was a great neighbour. He lives true to the motto ” Ships of wood, men of steel” Reply F L C July 30, 2012 at 1:38 pm Brilliant! Its people like Bob, and stories like this that made me fall in love with this stretch of coast, and move here from half a world away. Reply Alex Thomson May 26, 2014 at 3:30 pm My parents had a place down by the quay side for many years and subsequently we were there a lot taking advantage of the free hospitality. Part of this time was making friends with local people, Bob being one. I used to work with him on his boat often, purely for experience and enjoyment, as I am a keen fisherman. I am half his age and he regularly mocked me for not being able to row like him in a swell when shooting the net!!! A nicer man you will never meet and so many many dear memories Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
