This year to date in gear alone, around 11k. Last year - probably upwards of 8, and if I go back to all my fly gear - scary. That is tackle only.

The trips internationally, the petrol and flights to the coast? Bait? Fuel for the boat? These costs are categorized as "holiday" costs, but if allocated to the sport we all love, would be a lot higher than the tackle costs. By an order of magnitude of 4 at least is my guess.

I do not want to do the calculations....... a palpitation would be the result. My other half is an accountant, she must NOT do the sums.

I am sure that for most of us out there, IT IS A LOT!!!!!
