Interview with Charlyfarly2

October 29th, 2013

If you are into fishing, barbel, chub and YouTube, then no doubt you will have already come across the Charlyfarly2 YouTube channel. I have been subscribed to this for quite a while, I love logging in and seeing that a new video has been uploaded.

Tom is the man behind the alias, I contacted him so I could find out more about him and his fishing.
