Hi my name is Tim Sutlieff and I am the Skipper of She Likes it II.
I first started boat fishing at the age of ten with my father and grandfather, who had already taught me the basics of fly fishing and coarse fishing. Between them they finally persuaded my mother to let me go out with them on their monthly fishing trip.
The boat in question was the Celia Rose, which was skippered by Ken Voice who was the Coxswain of Shoreham Lifeboat at the time. I had a great time, and on the way back to port Ken sat me in his seat, told me to aim between the red and green lights, and went aft to chat with the rest of his customers (whilst keeping a careful eye on the wake).
I was hooked and have been fishing on boats out of Shoreham, Littlehampton and Brighton ever since.
I first met Mark in 2012 just after he had bought She Likes It II. My late father and I were regular customers up until Marks retirement. I was able to complete the purchase of She Likes It II late last year, and I cannot thank Mark enough for his support and guidance.
My aim is to follow Marks lead and provide the same excellent service, to be as flexible and accommodating as possible. I want your fishing and boat trips around the Sussex coast to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and one that you will leave you wanting to come back again (and again).
A Little Bit More about your Skipper.
I have not always been a Charter Skipper, previously I spent over 30 years in the Construction Industry. I started as chain-boy working for a local Land Surveyor, then I joined John Mowlem & Company as an apprentice and spent 14 years with them before joining Balfour Beatty for the next 17 years.
