in #CASE you missed it… 75 year old widower posted looking for someone to fish with, overwhelmed by response.
Ray Johnstone posted the ad online earlier this month looking for someone to go fishing with after his friend died.
Seems that about 100 anglers have been in touch with him since the 75-year-old cast the net for company.
He said he is amazed by the response and it is something he never expected.
"It gets a bit lonely just sitting around watching the TV a lot of the time," he said.
Since the ad was posted on January 19 it has been viewed more than 88,000 times.
