    Default Frustrating Session

    I was standing not 10 yards from a bloke today who was litterlay pulling them in, even when he moved to a new spot the trout seemed to be there.
    I did ask what and how he was fishing, but to no avail.
    Never mind you never know.
    Makes you sick though? or is it just me

    Happens to the best of us. I can recall a few occassions when boat fishing and either me or my partner bagged up and the other would be lucky to get one.

    I cant relate a fly fishing tale to suit as I have only been twice since I took the sport up.

    However fishing for chub one day, a friend and I used identical rods, brand and strength line, rig, hook, bait you name it. I know the rigs were identical as I tied all his for him

    We were casting into the current and letting the flow drag the rigs round on a tight line, and drop into a hole on the Teme. Our hookbaits must have been finishing no more than a foot or two apart.

    That day he took 9 chub and 2 barbel, and i never had a knock all day.

    He even swapped positions and rods with me halfway through out of mercy and guilt, and still I did not have so much of a touch.

    Sometimes, you can fish perfectly and have a stinker of a day. Other days you can fish like a **** and bag up.

    Just hope at the end of your fishing days, you can look back and reflect that you had at least one of the latter for every couple of the former.
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine,
    No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook,
    With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray,
    And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey

    I've always thought that it is particularly bad form not to let on what you are catching on, especially when there are fish there to be caught.

    Having said that I have also had similar experiences to those above, ie boat fishing, same fly, same line, same leader length, and one of us has caught considerably more. Even swapping ends in the boat made no difference.

    If that exact situation has never happened to you, then you haven't been fishing very long.
