As an avid sea angler and lover of the Yorkshire Coast there aren’t many places ...


  1. Well done Bob people like you and your wife are the reason people outside visit yourTown. Great pictures.
    Bet you have some great tales to tell about Whitby Salmon and Sea-Trout.

  2. 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”

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. Hello

    I work for True North a television comapny in Leeds and we arenreally interested in speaking to Bob about our series Homes By The Se as we have a segment on there called ‘Living The Dream’ where we feature people passionate about their jobs and in jobs they wouldnt have if they didnt live near the coast. Does anyone know how I might get in touch with him?

He told us about his life. I could of listened all day. He said he was 85. I watched open mouthed as this lovely man jogged off!!!! What a character!!!!
