Back in 1968 our uncle and gran took myself and my brother Geoff on the Norfolk Broads whilst our mum struggled on towards giving birth to our sister Collette. Uncle Syd bought us telescopic rods and taught us to fish.
We were both hooked on fishing and the Broads.
It would be seven years until our next trip and then every few years I returned to the Broads introducing a few new people to the magic of the place.
Fast forward to 2015 and with having two, sometimes three holidays a year on the Broads we decided to buy a share in a syndicate boat called Silver Cloud. We enjoyed seven great years having four weeks a year except when Covid interrupted things.
Our kids keep breeding and it got to the stage where we didn’t have enough room to accommodate everyone comfortably on Silver Cloud, so we sold our share and bought one on Lightning.
We hope to have many trips on her but sometimes the weeks we need aren’t available, so we book a lodge.
This website is a journey through our upcoming trips (currently the 3rd of January 2023 as I write) whether they be on the boat, land based or a bit of both.
