Good luck with everything.We really love Cornwall and watching your Cornwall fishing programme.My son challenged me to walk more than him for four weeks in a row.I beat him and have walked over 300 miles,not bad for a 62 year old.

Stayed in Cadgwith last summer and felt the sense of community and local spirit. I was shocked to see the issues affecting the cove’s fisherman in the BBC Fishing Life documentary. Very pleased it’s all working out for you!
