Something about this statement caused me to pause. I think any rank beginner is simply motivated by the desire to catch fish, but anyone else who isn't a rank beginner should view what we do as 'fishing' rather than 'catching'. At the very least, your expectations will be in the right place. Furthermore, you will challenge yourself to learn and develop, and enjoy the full experience of fishing, no matter what weather conditions are thrown your way. You will be a better angler for it.It costs me £30 each time I go so I want to make sure I stand a decent chance of catching.
