In terms of good PR for angling it doesn’t come much better than David Beckham taking his lad Brooklyn out fishing.

They were mobbed when they were spotted at Weymouth Harbour preparing for a deep sea fishing trip aboard the Katie Ann, skippered by Paul Davis. And Brooklyn (16) had a result too, boating a specimen John Dory.

Former Manchester United, Real Madrid and England star David Beckham posted the picture on Instagram adding: ‘Not bad for his first time fishing… a nice John Dory that the captain said it’s the 2nd biggest one he had seen… Very proud.’
