I haven't done much time in the sea for the last couple of years for various reasons, today went snorkeling on the Isle of Wight and was instantly reminded why I like doing what we do. I spotted several average sized mullet and one very, very decent sized bass, the fog of every day life was lifted and I saw the light....again. I didn't have my wetsuit or fins so got out when my little fingers wouldn't stay where I wanted them to! As this is the snorkeling section and I am pleased to see its arrival, I've used different snorkels, each with its pluses and minuses but generally go back to my aging typhoon, with flexible hose, purge valve and splash guard in conjunction with old faithful, my Hollis. Also the visibility was phenomenal, I'm used to the mainland side of the Solent....we've evolved whiskers to feel the fish........
