Well said mate

Most of the reasons listed above apply to me but the best reason is the freedom to do what I want, and when.  I can choose my own jobs, charge my own rate and do it when I want.

The biggest draw is being outside in the fresh air after spending 20 years in an office.  I was mentally stimulated in my work but I always used to stare out of the windows wishing I was outside but I could never think of a job that I would want to do.

The job is one of the best for anyone who has no qualifications. Start when you want. Finish when you want. Take a 2 hour lunch break if you like. Days off when you want. And as I don’t do that texting customers the night before malarkey, can go home halfway through the day and finish off tomorrow. Brilliant job.

I like being able to go fishing on a whim anytime I like.

Especially now it's pike season.. the fly rod is in the van ready at all times.

Can't beat pike on a fly.
