not out today getting books done for agm for fishing club to be honest its to fkg cold to fish soon be time for the t shirt on and get stuck into the roach /and my favourite bass on the floating plug
To be perfectly honest if I hadn't wanted to check the otter fence for damage after the high winds we've had I probably wouldn't have gone over today. Having said that one of my members fished in atrocious conditions last night and caught two carp.

Lol not even remotely close.
Love most types of beer/ale/lager, red wine and very partial to port.
When my father-in-law was alive I used to buy him a different single malt for every Christmas and birthday and enjoy a glass with him. Perhaps I should go buy myself a decent one like I would have bought him.

Sea angling Andy, shore and boat, some great marks around the Kerry coast was one of the reasons I moved here 20 years ago always fished since I was young freshwater and saltwater, caught my first salmon on the fly 1970 hooked ever since!
I grew up right on East coast and did loads of sea fishing up to the age of 17. Unfortunately it was at a time when the sea had been absolutely raped and the fishing was terrible. That's why I sold my gear and just concentrated on freshwater.

Is it hard to catch carp Andy? Lad that works with us goes all over and blanks. Doesn’t half get some stick. Been some place in Oxford a few times Nottingham couple of places in France. Bills lake was one of them that I can remember. Thinks that everybody that walks passed him on the job wants to talk about fish. 20 men on this one job doesn’t shut up about it then blanks. Comes back quiet as a mouse.

Carp are like most fish, they can be very, very easy catch and unbelievably difficult. Obviously the more in any lake the easier it'll be to catch them. If he keeps blanking on various different waters he's probably what's referred to as a Noddy. Next time he blanks be sure to call him one. He'll really appreciate it.

He’s a definite noddy, went to France other year blanked his van wouldn’t start so he left it thinking he’d just get it towed back. Got quoted £1500 off 3 different companies, van was only worth £2500 :ROFLMAO:

This is a 'no girls zone's. Now we realise that you're not like a real girl, but you're still not allowed in here. Most anglers don't even like fish, but they like their women even less, it's escapism.
Oh Andrew, you’re ‘baiting’ me now! I caught sardines today... in a can n stuff... so I’m in here and :burlas:

You can’t escape me, I’m everywhere
