    Weymouth Weekender?

    Hi Adam I am very interested in making a trip up to Portland this year however I can't do next weekend but going forward would be interested in going there either on our own or with others. Also there is a proposed WSF meet at Portland starting the weekend of the 29th August. I have been watching this evolve but as yet not put my name down for it but weather permitting would do that WSF meet

    Adam just looking at your recalling the history part of the club and for those that are interested would like to update with this. Our first club online presence was indeed on Phantom Fisher. I negotiated with the owner to have our own page on his site. Unfortunately this only lasted a few months before due to personal circumstances he pulled the plug and closed the site. Our experience with this site however planted the seed that we needed our own online presence. Another website based in the solent/isle of wight area (Solent Angler?) was at that time the largest fishing site in our area. I contacted Chris the then owner and agreed with him that we could temporarily have our own page/section on his site whilst we sorted our own. Chris welcomed us with open arms. Our part of this website soon became the dominant section of Chris's site. He was infectiously enthusiastic on building his site and sea angling in general. This page really took off and gave the club such a boost in interest/membership. After an appeal I had contact with a former member of the solent fishing site who agreed to build a site for us but this turned out to be a walk up a garden path and a total waste of time except for my meeting Paul Dore. Paul admitted he had not had much (or was it any) experience of building websites but he could write code so would give it a go. Paul built our original website and forum for no cost followed by subsequent updates and at least one rebuild. A lot of work was put into building both the club and the website in the early years. I am sure we would not have gotten as far as we have had it not been for Paul and I for one will be eternally grateful for his help laying the foundations of the club we have today. Oli is our current webby and has done a great job on our latest rebuild and maintaining what we have now. To all those reading we are interested in your story. How did you become a sea angler, from a young age, old age or just happened on? tell us the ins and outs I will try to recall my angling history from when I was a young lad until the present day and post in the next few days.
