    Joe Hart

    So, just a form slump then. Seems strange he's never (or rarely) mentioned in the media and as sum olgy says it does seem strange he wasn't snapped up as a former England keeper. I know he made the odd mistake but he didn't do bad for England overall.

    Joe Hart

    From England and Man City goalkeeper to obscurity in a very short time. Why? - booze, drugs, gambling or women ? Or all four? Is he still at Burnley?

    Fishing distance

    Is that because they have followed your fly from further out?

    Fishing distance

    Briefly referred to on another thread and then ignored. Most fish are caught within 10 yards, true or false? All I can say is I fish 2 lakes about 10 acres each and after recent stocking it is often true. However give it a week and unless you can cast a fair way out or take to the boat, the...

    Fishing with Sir Edward Elgar on 15 June

    So it was overcoming health issues rather than "advanced" age which made it "qute a walk". I'm not trying to be pedantic but health issues aside, 61 and 70 is hardly extreme old age even 100 years ago. Anyway I did enjoy your blog, well done for thinking of doing this.

    Fishing with Sir Edward Elgar on 15 June

    Nice idea but I have to take issue with you on one point. I don't know how old you are but,"It was less than a mile, mostly downhill. He was aged 61 and Lady Alice was 70. Quite a walk at their age." Really? I know plenty of that age and older who regularly walk 10 miles and more on rambles.

    Excellent Job Invicta

    Because I wasted 2 minutes of my life thinking we had at last got a new forum which worked better than this clunky one. I didn't think to check the dates at first, not expecting anyone to be daft enough to resurrect an old thread for reasons known only to themselves. Ah well, little things...

    How do you measure success when fishing?

    It's not a business, it's not a career, it's not something to be measured. It's enjoyment. Who cares as long as you have that?

    Re: The "BLOB" I have to say I agree entirely with all the views expressed on this thread.:confused:

    Is Fly Fishing Phoney

    I've only fished reservoirs once - Blagdon and Chew, on a two day trip with a couple of friends about 15 years ago. They had never fished a reservoir before either. It wasn't particularly difficult, we all caught a fair number of fish, mostly on Montanas as I remember. I've had days like that...

    The Golden Age of Angling

    A Passion for Angling - perhaps indicative of a gentler more mannered age? I enjoyed it, especially the emphasis on being out there, not just trying to catch as much as possible.

    I read on another thread (and in several books) that confidence in the fly you are using helps catch fish. Why? and How?

    Electric Outboards and batteries - advice greatly appreciated

    Buy a pair of clip on battery terminal connectors which you can buy at any car accessories shop. They save a lot of messing hooking up and unhooking.
