    Default Retirement planning

    I've recently retired, love fishing in all its forms qnd therein lies my dilemma. Now I do know I'm ver fortunate to have the time and capacit to indulge this passion BUT I do find working out when and how to go course fishing, fly fishing, predator fishing, sea fishing, pole , feeder or waggler and making sure I practice all forms to keep sharp and catching. Planning was never a strong point so any advice gratefully received.
    Oh by the way given other committments I can feasibly fish two days a week.

    Problem with retirement is that there just aren't enough hours in the day.

    When you are retired the governing factor for sea fishing is the tides and for all the other disciplines, it's the weather. I'm buggered if I'm going to freeze or get soaked when there are 6 other days in the week to go!

    Wink Re: Retirement planning

    I retired a few years ago and fish 2-3 times a week. The problem with the idea of fishing 4-5 days a week is one of exhaustion!!
    At a younger age I could have done it standing on my head..now I get tired and get aches and pains in places that I never used to know existed.
    The thought of casting a fly all day then holding a long pole the next would seem hard work to say the least.
    The other consideration is of money. The small items of gear need replacing a lot quicker. Then there are all the other costs of fuel/tickets/bait. Have a few local club books which are quite cheap.
    Just do what takes your fancy. slow down and enjoy todays fishing and worry about the next trip after you get home and complete your log.
    Its a tough life with decisions like these to make!!!

    I'm not exactly retired, just "between" jobs with no particular hurry to get one. That's certainly what I'm finding. I often wonder how I ever found the time to go to work. If I could, I'd officially retire in a heartbeat.
