    The things that I remember most of all are the early summer mornings when the mist is drifting on the river and the church bells are ringing and the woodpidgeons are cooing in the background, together with the anticipation of catching some of those lovely brassy scaled chub; before most people have even got out of bed. Those are the really magic moments that I will always remember.
    Or an early morning watching a heron moving silently around, sometimes being followed by a magpie (hoping to snatch a fish that has been dropped by the heron) amidst the early morning bird chorus. together with the anticipation of the first Barbel bite on a lovely quiet river, or of the float quietly being slipped away by a nice red-eyed Tench amongst the lilly pads on a nice quiet picturesc estate lake.

    Its these atmospheric moments which I find are some of my most favourite moments in fishing.
    It's not always the biggest fish that I remember, but the magical atmospheric moments that I've spent by a water.

    What about you?; what is it that makes you love fishing so much?, is it the bite of a big fish? or perhaps its fishing a new water for the first time? or winning a match? or watchng that huge grey shape appearing below your crust?..

    My self; Its getting out in the fresh air and the enjoyment of trying to get the bigger one on my line, no matter what type of fish, also its a sport that is too close to my hart ( I love it ).

    The fact that it's not easy and there is no foolproof 'always works' method or answer.

    Always a challenge.

    Leavened every now and then once or twice in a season if you're lucky by those red letter days when for some unknown reason everything just works.

    Early mornings on a stillwater. The only sound, the ploop of the float as it enters the water.

    I'm with Baz on this one.

    4am starts in the summer, getting to a small lake, setting up, then sitting in silence watching the mist lift off the lake surface as the sun warms it up, the odd little splash and ripple the as the fish wake, and the utter stillness. Goosebump stuff-------

    I think my favourite thing when fishing are the days when i stop taking it seriously and just have fun. It doesn't matter whether it's on a still water, canal or river. I can't think of anything that's moremesmerising than sitting by the water watching your float...

    Watching a pike float come to life on a frosty misty morning. the anticipation of lifting into an unknown fish.
