When trolling for mackerel, stripers, or bluefish, you should carry a spare rod and reel filled with lead-core line or a fly outfit with fast-sinking fly line. Sometimes the smaller fish stay on top while the larger specimens remain 10 to 20 feet deeper.

I also learnt how to be two-timed, when I was walking back through the caravan site with my mother one afternoon and found Debbie glued mouth-to-mouth with another young blood from three caravans up. I thought: The sneaky bastard; the two-timing bitch.’ I was wounded and humiliated to the core. We walked past them; they were oblivious to us, like a couple of dogs locked together. We pretended not to notice. Back at the caravan, my mother mumbled sympathy. I tried to look as if I wasn’t bothered. Hey: if Debbie from Dawlish could see me now – back from Venezuela, back from the western ocean; a boy no more: a man who worked 16-hour days, burnt from the Caribbean sun, blasted by the Atlantic freeze. I saw myself walking past her without a backward glance, like Anna in the closing scene of The Third Man, leaving her in my dust with her spotty, snotty choice of boy. I squeezed satisfaction from the thought as the train crept out of Dawlish and hurried west towards Plymouth.
