The strange thing for me is my job, I am a hotel duty manager, which puts me right in the front line of having to talk to people every day, and some customers you just wish...
My colleagues who I work with all seem to accept how I am, although I know at times they do find me difficult, and strange as I don't do social very well.


I can't remember where I read it, but I believe that a lot of engineers, inventors, scientists and doctors are within the ASD or Aspergers syndrome; certainly many people in those trades I have spoken to are single minded and struggle to communicate with other people. If they explain about a procedure they can be almost in a monotone.

Agreed.

Maybe, the best way to put it is there are shades and we all fit in somewhere within to more or less of an extent. I know myself, I can be OCD - someone who knows me well points it out regularly, much to his amusement - and pretty relentless trying to achieve what some may seem as pretty mundane or even unnecessary/unimportant activities.

I think the difference is is where that focus is directed. From what I've seen of Terry Hearn for instance, he's obsessed with the very tiny intricate important details, whereas I'm fannying around with my bedchair being level so as to be able to get to sleep, so much so I have to use a spirit level app on my phone to get it dialed in just.... ....right.

From time to time I can direct my crazy and does pay off with fish on the bank, though, my head is like a bird's nest of crazy and cutting through that bird's nest is a long winded and pretty winding, meandering journey.

How on earth do you reach those conclusions from what I said? I was pointing out that referring to someone as a mental or making sweeping negative statements about people with Autism is not only Il informed it is also insensitive and innappropriate on a public platform.

Actually you're right and I should have chosen my words far more carefully than I did. If I've offended anyone, then I do apologize for doing so.

I do think that there are certain traits that fall under the spectrum that are in some way gifts which I'm of the opinion may have a bearing on levels of success - this may well be an incorrect assumption on my part - though, equally, those gifts may well not seem such gifts for those whom have them; if that makes sense?

Not in response to anyone in particular, everyone has traits that will fit in the spectrum its when these traits start to affect daily life that it becomes an issue for the person. i really dont care what JS does in his fishing because it wont affect me,i certainly wish my photo album was like his but dont have the time or the inclination to go to those efforts. The furore he creates in forums like this are amusing at times and worth a read, however i do think everyone needs to be a little nicer to each other, as said many times opinions are likes arse holes we all have one but dont need to share them. Just think about whats being said before typing.
Have a fab day

I think the guy who had a go has fallen into the trap of of thinking all people with Aspergers are non verbal, canít make eye contact etc. Itís a very old fashioned way of viewing what is a wide ranging disorder. Hence we now have a spectrum. My missus is a nurse, one of their best surgeons is on the aspergers spectrum he struggles in social situations and with confrontations but he is whatís known as a High functioning case ie apart from those two situations there is nothing wrong with him, his mind just works differently.

I think Jim Shelley if Iím honest has just done too many bloody drugs back in the day if Iím honest, there was a thread a while ago about nick Helleur and his odd personality unlike Jim nick has been open about his drug use on the rave scene, they both have a shifty vibe to them that often comes from heavy drug use and before anyone goes how can you be qualified to say that, I will reiterate what I said on that thread.

Iím a chef I work in an industry with a real drug problem, I work with people everyday who display similar traits as both anglers mentioned even now they are clean and have been for a while itís given them certain ticks as it were. Jimís appears to be paranoia, nicks appears to be he canít talk about one thing for more than a few seconds without going off on a completely different tangent

Asperger's, same as me. Like you I find it very hard to back down over things. Also being in a crowd can send me into a panic. Most people can't live with how "short" my verbal skills are and think I'm being an arse or dismissive with them on purpose.

If I ever mention that that I'm on the spectrum to somebody they always seem to think it makes you into some kind of genius too

I am sure that there are many anglers who have some level of Autistic Spectrum Disorder as in all human activity. "

Yes. I'm one of them. Hence I know a bit about it. Hope your little bitch fit you've just had has made you feel good about yourself.


I am as well, Aspbergers syndrome or whatever it has now been called, putting me in the Autistic Spectrum, diagnosed at the age of 45 after a few years of stress through work.
I do know that ASD means I can be an argumentative git when I know I'm in the right.

That does not mean I go out of my way to break rules fish where I shouldn't, or behave in a manner that is anti-social

Sorry knickersniffer and boonylocks but time to shut up. I am sure that there are many anglers who have some level of Autistic Spectrum Disorder as in all human activity. Your ignorant, innacurate and insensitive words and statements don't do you or this forum any favours. Think BEFORE you speak. I have no intention of developing this further, but this needed to be said.

"Highly autistic" people can barely perform daily functions or live a normalish life, I doubt that they would be able to cope with going fishing on their own.

But I do agree that mega successful people in general (not just fishing) have brains that just don't work the same as the average joe out there. Often this at odds with "normal" peoples behaviour or moral standards. They are often loners who don't have to worry about being socially accepted and carp angling is an ideal pastime for people of that ilk. They have traits that are often seen on the ASD spectrum, but will be very low on the spectrum.

Carp fishing is a hobby. Being a decent carp fisherman doesn't get remembered if you are an awful human with it. Jim Shelley is a decent fisherman and didn't need to do all the other stuff. He will only be remembered as a bad person. Makes you think.

Ainít that the truth mate, I see so many guys on the lakes I fish even on the severely limited time I have who turn up with a couple kilos of the latest on trend bait, donít bother looking for the fish, donít bother finding spots etc just turn up take the nearest swim to the car park put out their bait in a general area and then blank and come round asking what Iím doing to have caught when he is using such and such bait which cost him X amount per kg, they are often shocked when I say for example on this estate lake I fish that the carp seem to like a sweeter bait and Iím using mainline peaches and cream, so not an expensive bait certainly not the best available but I look for where they are find some spots and also I soak them in a mix of the cell stick mix liquid, condensed milk an a bit of water. A good bait used badly is not going to work how it should.

As with the rods I have greys rods as Harrisonís and century were out of my price range lol and certainly not bad rods at all

I know a bloke who had a bait shop, use to make and roll his own mixes well before the spike in carpfishing shall we say. He then started to stock pre-rolled baits from popular manufacturers shall we say. Because people were asking for them. He used to fill the freezers with said bait, few months later, everybody wanting the next new bait, few months later, same again, and again and again and again. Shut him down eventually. You would not believe how often some people change bait. Itís the first thing they blame why they blank. Nothing to do with them fishing the wrong spots or the fish donít recognise itís as a food source ffs. Some other successful carp angler publishes his catches and names that bait, all the sheep are on it. He has caught the fish because he knows what he is on with, key point, and got the fish on the bait!

Look at big Jim, catches on everything he uses. Couple this with his style, heavy baiting, like mentioned below and what did he put in Wellington, 50kg hits. Bloke comes along with a KG of said bait on his water and thinks he is going to change the world, sad truth is, he ainít

There are some very good bait companies about with a good reputation, their baits catch fish, all people need to do is pick one, apply and stick with it. They will catch 100 times more fish than going with latest wonder bait every other week.

Like I also said, these trends have put a lot of people out of business too and will continue to do so. Once a good bait, always a good bait

Like fishing rods, you want a quality rod, buy century or Harrisonís. Look at all the run of the mill companies pedalling fancy names and models all the time, catching anglers, not carp, new range of rods every other year!!!, must haves!!!

And this is why I roll my own bait and have done for years. I know exactly what every single gram goes into my boilies. How many other people can say the same?!

This is it mate. Like most things in carpfishing, hyped up beyond belief because some company or somebody is trying to scrounge a living for from it

Thereís lots of good bait companyís come and gone, not because their products are poor, because they have not caught the sheep. Sad state of affairs for me. And then I see these idiots, the fame seekers, doing the self promotion and company promotions and they have not got a ****ing clue about bait. Thatís what annoys me

Agree with this and scozza, more money in advertising than there is in the actual bait creation and development. Advertise well enough and it donít matter if your bait is a ball of dust, thereís so much going in all over that fish will get caught on it.

See what goes off. Full of sheep that donít know **** all about bait. They are just round balls

Bait swapping and brand jumping!. Once a good bait, always a good bait

50% of carp anglers are ****ing clueless (thatís being polite btw) bought out of the box or off shelf brigade, they donít know **** all about bait other than itís round, they have no experience of it!!!, they can push a needle through it and occasionally they catch a carp on it. They are more conditioned than the fish with all the advertising hype I am sorry to say

What Mainline and the rest do is pretty amazing imho. They help idiots catch the fish of their dreams and they have not got an clue on the real reasons WHY

**** like this has shut a lot of good, reputable, business down ffs

The best bit, then they send their pictures into magazines or post them on social media with their crap videos and stories giving it the big ďI amĒ when really they have not got a ****ing clue

Not sure if true or not. But if anything like that happened anywhere I fish and was previewed to it. It wouldnít end well for either of us. Absolutely no need for complete disregard of life. If he did do this then he should be ashamed of himself.

Had one personal experience with him which was the Carp Forum social in Wolverhampton a few years back where he was the guest speaker. I didn't know anything about him so sat there listening for what I thought would have been a few anecdotes, tips and all things carpy.

Instead it was basically him bragging about fishing SSI that he had to break into, stealing someones boat and other similar stunts. He thought it was all funny.

To cap it all my brother won a free tuition lesson with him. When he rang up to book it he said he would only do it if someone else also paid full price which wasn't mentioned anywhere before.
His attitude stank and he was rude.

The bloke's a knob and frankly I'm always surprised people idolise him.

I remember when he was a member on here and was kicked off for how he treated people.

That all being said, he makes no difference to my life and the world is full of other knobs who do far worse.

Dave Lane and Terry Hearn come across as genuine nice guys as do many other well known carp anglers they have all bent the rules to land their target fish it just seems like Jim Shelly takes it that extra bit further. The story about him nailing bream to trees does not sit well with me. I know they can be annoying but that's all part of it for me I would never kill one just because it picked up my bait.

I donít know Jim Shelly or want to know him..and Iíll probably never fish the same waters as him....but in regards to tackle companies sponsoring him, heís got it made....

I start bait company tomorrow..clobersauraus baits get Jim Shelly on the payroll and over night everyone will know about clobersauraus baits.... all his followers will get my bait company known on social media....and all his haters will come on forums etc....shout about Jim Shelly jumping ship again to clobersauraus baits.....is that worth the free bait and wages i pay him....I donít know but it must be....

It reminds me of a film i watched years ago about Howard Stern the radio presenter...very controversial radio shows in America and a statement was made...the people who like him listen for 30 mins and the main reason they listen is to see whatís heís gonna say next......the people who hated him listened for 2 hrs and again the main reason they listen is to see whatís heís gonna say next....

I bet its similar with Jim Shelly....i bet he gets more publicity from people that think heís a cock than he does from people who think heís an all round good egg.....

Watched a guy with a bait boat put his bait in a far margin swim on g lake at waveney valley, had to swerve the boat around probably 20yards of very thick lily pads.Honestly not sure if it was jim but he certainly was in the area, if it wasn't Jim it was one of his Norfolk sheep .

Again for me I have mixed feelings, he has never done anything to me and has actually been very friendly even when I messaged him saying I thought one of his views he had expressed was total c**p but Iím totally in agreement with mr Magoo he 100% has some sort of personality disorder and maybe some mental health problems he just always seems paranoid, and jittery even in the cyp interview at his house he was like it so canít be just cos he is fishing where he shouldnít be.

As for the poaching itís wrong but so was the guesting back in the day itís not for me.

One or two stories with evidence point to someone being a bit of a t**t but the amount of stories there are defo point to some sort of personality disorder, Iím gonna have my brother in law have a look at his interview he is a qualified psychologist so should be good and hilarious what he thinks of him 😂😂

However all things said he catches a lot of big carp, yeah he has said about using a lot of bait but so do a lot of the other names, saw one in a mag saying he used 45kg of particle to clear a spot then baited with 30kg of boilies!! They all do it so I wonít slag off his methods, stroke pulling happens on all lakes

Not sure how true the story is but in the Conningbrook chapter everyone else is apparently pussy-footing around with single hookbaits etc trying to catch 'Two Tone', JS says he filled a spot in with 40k of particles and had it on his 2nd night there, classic if true

We live in a society where you have to be a sheep speak like how your told, think what you're told to think. Jim Shelly goes against the grain and you see the pathetics come out in force. Man is a carp catching machine and upsets snowflakes. Big thumbs up for Jim from me...

I think heís an exceptional catcher of carp and especially large ones. And in the early days he travelled from Norfolk to wraysbury to bait up and sure he was working in those days. Iím sure he has a mrs not sure on kids.

BUT, thatís where it ends for me. Poaching waters is now #carpy and loads do it, but youv got to be a special kind of stupid/arrogant to publicise it. His vids come across as jittery and avoiding the qís wether to give air of mystery or god knows but seems heís constantly trying to think of ways to say things without getting in trouble. Forgetting about the heavy baiting, attitude and bullying what made me think Ďdickí was in his second book. He is doing a tuition and decides to go and fish a diff lake on the complex, comes back and matey is struggling with a fish. If I was paying the prices I would want him with me 24/7 and not wandering off on Ďmy timeí

Heard many many tales from ppl I trust of him trying to bully others.

TBH itís quite clear to everybody that he obviously does not give a **** what people think about him

I have the book, he clearly states if it wasnít for carpfishing he would not have achieved much in his life. No doubt he may have psychological problems, same as most people. Whether people like him or not thatís their choice. He has managed to earn a living out of carpfishing where thousands have failed. This thread just shows the true reflection of carpfishing too for me, lot of back biting and a lot of bitterness on both sides which is typical of a lot of waters

Ever since in have fished, fishing and stroke pulling go hand in hand, happens on nearly every water I have fished, there are always one or two, even half a dozen characters shall we say on most of the waters I have fished. Years ago as a kid I saw a famous matchman get a knee in the bollox and sparked out in the car park for fishing for a few seconds after time was called. In fact, I could write a book about what Iíve seen over the years!

I take people on face value. As long as they are straight with me, I am with them, simple.

I donít doubt what he has been up to and Iím sure he has been on the end of it many times as I said below. What goes around comes around

Carpfishing is also full of a lot of two faced lying trouble causers too, I hate people like this myself

Great post, can I have a selfie?

If heíd have chosen the Ď normalí life he would have made an outstanding shop steward or traffic warden something along those lines whereas everyone thinks your a **** except other traffic wardens or shop stewards
....wasn't he a Prison Officer at one time or is that a myth?


Having recently read his first book to see what all the fuss was about, it's obvious he liked the 'White Lightening' a bit too much which helps but I always wondered if his (only?) mate Mark drowning on Wraysbury had had a big effect on him but it seems he was a massive **** before that as I even found the whole vibe of that book is 'I'm not really like the rumours let's put the record straight' so he was obviously up to his shenanigans from the start.

Spot on imo. You can tell in those interviews he's in a world of his own. The actual questions put to him just don't register.

What has been said that isn't fact? For starters I have proof of him lying about fish weights and I have proof that he's stolen fish.

I've witnessed him baiting & poaching more than one lake, one of which is owned & run by an angling club so it's actually theft of fishing rights & not just poaching. We're not talking about a bit of romantic 'guesting' that everyone gets so hard over these days.

I wonder how you'd feel if he was skulking about in the bushes of your lake, inviting his friends down, removing fish and then having the audacity to have Elliot down there doing a film with him.

I know it was him who was moved on by Police during lockdown because I know who rang them after he was spotted.

The sprayed message in the swim that I put a photo up is real too.

Regardless of his ability to catch fish, anyone who condones this sort of behavior is as bad as he is and is a stain on angling.

normal Anglerís on limited time with mortgages , full time jobs and children are never ever going to achieve what these so called Ď topí boys are going to itís physically impossible.

Well said, any working man who has chased carp over the years gets my total respect over any bank tramp. I know what itís all about. Tough old game

The rest of it is an interesting profile

Undoubtably caught a lot of big carp and I assume a very capable angler, loads of free time and bait also helps, What he also has are mental health problems.

Anyone who acts the way he does has to have some kind of issue, as alluded to in the filmed interview,he completely ignored some really interesting questions because I donít think he understood half of them and he also seems to like to project an air of mystery And aloofness which he either believes in himself or he thinks other people do.

Fella I know fished with him at fen drayton who said he got on ok with him but he was a habit of rubbing certain people up the wrong way and this I think is half the problem.

He is in a small minority of Anglerís who spend their whole lives pursuing big fish, when you analyse this bunch the majority of them have no children, no real possessions and a lot of them have no partners.

Ď normal Ď ? Anglerís on limited time with mortgages , full time jobs and children are never ever going to achieve what these so called Ď topí boys are going to itís physically impossible.

Now, if he doesnít consider you to be a Ď top Ď boy he thinks your a sheep and that he is far superior ( in catching terms he very likely is ) than you this I think is where the problems start.

Something somewhere triggers this mental feeling of superiority whether it be drugs, drink, bullying or sexual abuse as a child something makes him think he is better than you and the fact you have all of the things in life that he doesnít Will not register with him because of his lack of intelligence or mental issues.

If heíd have chosen the Ď normalí life he would have made an outstanding shop steward or traffic warden something along those lines whereas everyone thinks your a **** except other traffic wardens or shop stewards.

Every Ď normal Ď angler with an ear to the ground knows he is a lying, cheating ******* that causes problems wherever he goes, getting bashed up, having to run away from people threatening him on lakes because he has said something about them all points the fact that he has mental health issues and the feeling of superiority stems from this.

So there you have it my thought on the man, you either agree or disagree depending on your outlook on life but I will also add, you will probably gather from my post that I am not a fan and I have my reasons which I will not explain on here, I have never met the retard but if he had said to me what he said to one of my good friends Iím pretty sure I would be in prison and Jim Shelley would be dead.

( footnote ) Shelley never actually said it he got one of his ( top/sheep ) to make the call.

Over and out

The majority wouldn't trespass and fish a private water then broadcast it

Disagree, loads have, and are fishing waters they should not, gone on for years, same as fish pinching and moving

Also. loads seem to be broadcasting nowadays. It seems lo be the done thing to me?

Lots of dickheads on the banks so he could be classed as just another by some. To be fair there are a lot of good guys too, pending where you fish of course

I respect him for what he has caught. Carp fishing is no longer what it once was for me, famous carp anglers of old were famous for guess what, catching carp, THE carp. Again, nowadays it seems to me that it does not matter what you catch as long as you can tell a good story and shout the next man down

Tuition, should be OK, Iíve fished for long enough, mind you though, would never turn down the opportunity to learn something

The majority wouldn't trespass and fish a private water then broadcast it and most anglers respected the lock down, if his attitude becomes that of the majority I would give up. How can you respect someone with catch at any cost attitude regardless of what he has caught? Maybe you should book some poaching tuition with him.

if you watch his interview on Cypography it' s a shame that Jim seems to either avoid (or not understand) some really good questions that could of made for a great interview, unfortunately he just seems to be constantly on the defensive about everything.

I know a lad who was fishing the same water as him at the time. He started baiting and fishing some spots he had going. He got so pissed off he threw a load of old fencing into the swim to snag him up. DEFINITELY not the thing to do

TBH It did make me laugh at the time though. What goes around comes around. You just have to deal with it

Many have dealt with him Chris, and mostly the lads commenting on here who speak of him know from experience not hearsay. I only had the misfortune once while visiting a mate at the lake he was on at the time and that few seconds told me the rumours were correct. He was disliked so much on there that they kept the fact his target fish had been had by an otter quiet for a couple of months just to piss him off

Well said

One of the most successful big carp catchers in this country over the last few decades

Catches the target fish, after target fish, after target fish, real deal, no bull****, just the the facts, the pictures

Must be a lot of jealous people about. From a carp fishing perspective, total respect for me

If he is a ****, deal with it, sounds like some people have

I've kept quiet, I can verify some of his behaviour. I would never have him on any water I ran.

From swims at Weybread where he baited up on top of other anglers, threatening them when they were where he wanted to fish, nailing bream to a fencepost. The cans left where he was fishing.

Taverham and Costessey using a dinghy to put end tackle out. It was only to be used for rescuing snagged fish.

Anglers who had to pull out of 'tuitions' having their phone number put on facebook for his acolytes to call.

Oh yes, threatening me, that went down like a lead ballon because I was not going to back down.
He also threatened Terry Hearn in the toilet at 5 Lakes apparently, and tried it on with Ian Chilcott.
I know what happened in both incidents.

Not really a like for like comparison is it. How many fish has Chris Yates stolen? How many '"40's" has he lied about their weights? How many private venues has he broken in to to fish? How many times during lockdown did he travel 100 miles to bait up a strictly no fishing lake and then get sent home by the police? How many times has he bricked off a flooded ditch to catch an escapee? How many times has he been filled in by a kid? How many venues has he been banned from?

Shelley is a true one-off, but he has made things work for him. Thereís clearly some underlying issues with him, maybe mental health, traumatic childhood, who knows.

Iíd rather watch him than the latest cocky non-entity fishing the latest overpublicised water eg Linch, Welly, Snaggy pit etc.....doesnít mean I like him.

Can I just point out jim is just doing what people have been calling guesting for years and years, think black mirror think various other big names who put articles in mags about their guesting. Itís all poaching. Jim is a character I disagree with a lot of the stuff he says and does(and have had conversations with him on insta about it) he has an odd character

As for Elliot again through insta have asked advice and he has been very willing to chat recommend things(none of which were sold by his sponsor) and have found him friendly

So you think it's ok the tricks he has pulled to catch them fish.How his selfish attitude has affected other people's fishing, you think his behaviour is acceptable

Donít forget the reason he was banned from here years ago.

Promised a prize in a contest then couldnít be arsed to honour it. Got really arsey when challenged ( as usual) and got kicked off.

So forget, poaching, soaping, conniving, leeching - heís just not a very honest or nice person.

Now thatís KIR

Well as of today Iíve decided to end my Cypography sub due to so many Jim Shelly videos on there.

Most people in agreement on here that he poaches and is a bit of a tosser so not paying money to a place where almost 30% of the videos have him in

Funny how the times he's been challenged by other anglers over his attitude and behaviour never get mentioned in those butt kissing vids.

Like the time he got filled in by a famous angler on a very famous complex. Yanno, that kind of stuff....

His demeanour on camera is certainly odd. Constantly stopping and pausing like he's hiding some enormous world ending secret.

To the comment regarding Elliot condoning his behaviour (whatever that may be) is a good point, he may well suffer in terms of sales if enough people stop watching due to its Jim Shelley heavy content.

If fishing is all i ever did and i had no morale compass im sure id catch a hell of a lot more than i do

Jim is a moron. I have fished the same lake as him and how he didnt end up in the lake I'll never know

Im undecided on elliot. I like what he does and he clearly possesses some talent but giving jim any publicity means that he's condoning the bloke so im done with cypography

If something is your passion you play buy the rules if you want to carry on with, stroke pulling and poaching doesn't make you a good angler it makes you a cheat and any company that knowingly sponsors such a person is in effect condoning them.

Like said he's probly banned from most waters so if carp fishing is your passion and life what els is he to do? He can't do that much poaching because I'm sure most good carp waters have an angler on all most all the time.
I'm not saying he's right doing it but what other options does he have

That just proves the companies sponsoring have the same morals, anything to make a few quid. Wonder how he would feel if someone took his motor with his kit in it and used it for some time then returned it and started blogging about it.

Some rather questionable methods are used though on occasion... I heard he's a dab hand with a trowel and a pack of bricks, and also seems to go through quite a lot of imperial leather....

Would you think him a nice fella if he was coming onto your private land to poach your fish? Can't believe company's still sponsor him.

To be fair to the man he simply has to poach, There are very few syndicates remaining that would accept his membership.

Easy enough to find where he's been fishing, he likes to leave a trail of fosters cans. He did at least one of the cypography films whilst poaching a private water. Hopefully he left all the fish in there this time.

I am not "in the loop" when it comes to his angling escapades. Got the impression though that he was keeping his nut down and doing rather well on a South East Res.

Forgive me here and promise Iím not stirring the pot or fishing for a response.

Unfortunately you probably will, red rag to a bull once you mention Jim's name.
I've never had a problem with Jim when I have met him, a character definitely. Never fished the same lake as him mind so...

As for Elliot. I've mentioned before on here that he comes across as a bit of a twhat/arrogant. I've recently met a couple of new members on my syndicate that have just left a lake he was fishing (banned from now apparently) and my assumption seemed to be correct. Never met him personally though.

Without trying to stir up a hornet's nest I've always had a similar impression of him too. Not at all the way I like to angle but each to their own I suppose

Forgive me here and promise Iím not stirring the pot or fishing for a response.

Been away from Fishing for a while and no surprise the same old names still dominate our sport.

While in lock down Iíve signed up to the Cypography channel and on the whole the content is great, some minor website bugs but hey ho. Love Elliot also!

After watching the Hunter series with Jim Shelly I get the impression he poaches a lot of his fish, which Iím sure is what he said or referred too. Itís hard to scroll back on the videos so didnít go back and re listen but Iím sure thatís what I heard.

Also does anybody else find him/his videos a bit hard work? Not the most enjoyable fella to watch (Goes off on tangents) but fair play he does put the big ins on the bank.

Thoughts?
