44 here as well (but I probably started much earlier than Nog). Looks like the oldtimers are out numbering the rest in the poll too. No wonder there is such a wealth of knowledge to be found here.

Caught my first fish at age 5 in the Winnipeg river system and was hooked for life. Moved to BC in 1972 at age 22 . I caught my first steelie that first winter on the coast and it has been a wonderful addiction ever since. I will hit 51 years as a fisherman in December.

I caught my 1st fish while visiting relatives in ontario....I think I was 3 or 4. began fishing the Fraser Valley when I was 5 (rod handed over/squaw fishing) and fished full time with my own big boy rod & reel since I was 7. not bad for someone who is 16 next month.

I too caught my first trout when I was five. Used a stick, line, hook and worm. I didn't set-up the rig - I let my dad's buddy do that. But I reeled the fish in (or pulled up)! I grew up in Kamloops when I was a kid and I used to go fishing in the Spring, Summer and Fall quite regularly - usually trolling flatfish with my step dad. I then moved to the Lower Mainland, went to school (UBC) and got involved with my fraternity, met my wife, got more education, began a career, and started flyfishing and tying back in 1998. I exclusively flyfished until 2 years ago when I was introduced to the sockeye fishery. Then FishFinder took me to the Vedder/Chilliwack and now I enjoy the drift fishing too! But I've always got a soft spot for the fly, and consider tying flies my fishing away from the water! I feel that I'm still learning every time I'm on the water! The obsession is quite ridiculous really... :oops:

All my life as well. am 44 now and hopefully will be going strong tillI drop. My Dad just turned 80 this year and has been fishing all of his life as well, so you can probably mark him down for about 75 years. He still handles a boat and trailer better than most. I'm very proud of him for doing what he does at his age.

Stone. First fish at age 4 (have a picture of me with the trophy, a 4 inch sun perch); therefore, I have been fishing for 58 years. Time flies. Will fish a week in B.C. this Oct, can't wait. Thanks. Salt.

I've loved to fish for as long as I can remember..Some of the best times as a boy was catching mud sharks with FishinFreak off any pier that we could fish from...Since then I've been fortunate enough to enjoy fishing at it's finest, and hope that my children will be able to have the same expeariences to look back on...I also look forward to the fact, that no matter how many years I get under my belt on the water, there'll always be something new to be learned.

Finder :wink:
