Default The Bigger the Better?

In Fishing, is Bigger, better?

Does more make it a better day?

I generally fish for bits and pieces so catching a few bonus fish of a few pounds, rather than just ounces, makes the day a little more rewarding for me.

Everything depends on the point of view of whoever is doing the fishing.

Sometimes bigger can be better, but not always. Sometimes more does make for a better day, sometimes it doesn't.

I haven't fished much the last year or so , I did become a real fanatic a while back but my fishing trip March 31st will be my first time in about 6 months.
i've never caught a non foul hooked carp over 10 lb , I have seen one about 25 it looked impossibly big , I'd LOVE to catch one that big.
Also there is a pool I have sat and caught numerous half pound roach on a whip - fantastic.

So I think size stops being an issue once you have caught a few big ones.

I like them all, but I always fish light rods and tackle so even the small fish are enjoyable. I love the red letter days when I catch loads, but I need the more normal days to make the red letter days. I think if every day was a red letter day I would give up.

So in answer to the questions no and no.

For me a big fish of a spices will always be better than a small one

I'd rather catch a couple of 2lb roach than 200 small roach

The venue and pedigree of the fish also affects what weight I prefer.
For example; a 1 lb wild chalkstream brownie is in my opinion better than a 10 lber from a day ticket lake.

For me, no, it is not a case of bigger is better.

I get as much, if not more, enjoyment from a day on the river catching lots of roach and dace as I do from a weekend on a lake where large carp are caught.

Aside from Pike I will fish for anything that swims in our rivers and lakes and am happy to just see a bend in the rod no matter how small . . . . . .
