    Is it all about the numbers???

    While salmon anglers pay huge sums to go casting on a river in the hope of a fish,trout anglers(stocked waters) feel they are owed fish and must be given lots of caught fish and BIG ones to feel satisfied.Nothing to do with "sport".Were is the sport in hauling a big fish out 2 seconds after its...

    Is it all about the numbers???

    Being an owner and making a profit these days isnt easy,but its also about looking after your stock as you would a cow or sheep.Sooner anglers realise this it would help and those who call it a sport ,should take what that entails,its about skill,patience and learning not,being easy and numbers...

    Is it all about the numbers???

    But if we are teaching them its easy by starting on stockies we are not letting them take their own journey.Your showing them this is how easy it is and when they dont catch is when the rest of what I said comes in. The only contempt i have is towards those who,like Douglas mentioned and those...

    Is it all about the numbers???

    So what your saying is show them how easy it is wait for the stock truck and fish every cast and when it gets hard they give up.The opposite can also be true,show them how fishing really is,where you need to think and use skills to catch and not become one of the bung and chuck brigade. No...

    Is it all about the numbers???

    That is so true in a nutshell and for anyone who says it isnt the norm,it is and one of the main reasons I retired from fisheries. Anglers arrive putting themselves under pressure to catch as many as possible and if they dont get into double figures the fishery is rubbish,its not been stocked...

    Risk assessment for fishing

    And the other 3rd is where? Bottom line is you can catch it anywhere,even contact with bags,shopping and those who catch it in the home are probably those not taking precautions and meeting up with others within as they dont watch TV and dont know there is a virus circulating. Its hard to...

    Yes he is but has he come on and said its fine to travel 14 miles go fishing all day on a 2 acre or whatever water and drive home 14 miles as long as its in the 24 hour period.? Depends what you interprate as exercise or is it I want to go fishing and class it as exercise as a loophole.No wonder...

    Risk assessment for fishing

    No, I stated in general,using a bung waiting for a bite,not you use one,it was in general after your remark about fishing closer available to you ie coarse fishing is not exercise. As for boris,unless it was a tandem,he was on his own and who knows what happened. So your saying you could drive...

    Risk assessment for fishing

    Its a bit late to think about this now for some.Where were the anglers before the pandemic and why now,all of a sudden they use this line so they can justify going out. By the way how will you weigh in and record your catch? The bottom line really is,if you want to go,go.Id rather protect...

    Risk assessment for fishing

    Using a bung waiting for a "bite" should be a good work out for many.Good for the eyes. I thought they were saying stay at home and only go out if essential,ie shopping check on a vulnarable person and the like.Exercise once a day for an hour within local area. Unlike Boris???? he went 7 miles...
