"I'm just lookin' for a fishing mate..."
Ray Johnstone, based out of Adelaide, recently lost his previous fishing partner, and is now looking for someone keen to go fishing with him.
The widowed pensioner took to Gumtree to post an ad searching for a fishing mate sharing a similar passion for 'land-based fishing'.
The ad reads:
"My name is Ray Johnstone. Australian. I'm a widowed pensioner who is looking for a fishing mate. My previous mate is now deceased.
I am a land-based fisherman. I have all the gear for all types of fish that is required for land-based fishing.
What I want is a fishing mate in a similar position to myself who also wants someone to go fishing with. I am willing to share all costs, e.g. petrol, bait, and should you happen to own a boat [am] willing to pay all ramp fees, but happy if you are also a land-based fisherman."
