    Re: Is this the L.I.F?

    Believe me Jeff my pathological dislike of the bloke pre dates him gatecrashing my zander session by about 25 years. He is just one of those people that gets right up my hooter.

    Re: The cost of your fishing.

    And I find that even more patronising. Never mind that properties are 2-3 times the price to start with so that "extra" £50 a week goes nowhere when your mortgage is huge. I'm on my occupational...

    Re: Is this the L.I.F?

    To cavalier and eccentric you can add inconsiderate and selfish.

    Re: The cost of your fishing.

    Well that sounds just a tad patronising to me. £2-20 a pint is a steal..but I still maintain,taking all things into account, that angling is considerably cheaper "oop North" than it is down here. My...

    Re: The cost of your fishing.

    It was me and I stand by my statement. A day ticket down here is typically a tenner...maybe 8 quid in some places but up to £12 in others. This is ordinary fishing not carping. To that you can add...

    I live in Bucks. There is no shortage of fishing....it just depends what sort of fishing you like. There is miles and miles of canal and countless rock hard "big pits" in the Colne valley. That...

    I guess the nearest fishing to me is about 20 mins but the majority of what I like to do is a good hour away. I dont like the travelling but its necessary. There is shedloads of water close to me but...

    I'm not trying to justify anything to anybody....the only person who needs convincing is me. There are certain brands/patterns of hook ( and line for that matter) that I either dont like, dont trust...

    Re: Ever fallen out with the hooks you use.

    What I meant was I do not carry umpteen different patterns of hook because the choice is so bewildering today it would drive me insane. I dont think I need a pellet hook to fish a pellet, or a red...

    Personally, I think far too much is made of hook pattern/shape and wire guage. I think hook manufacturers are no different to supermarkets in that respect....Mrs S knows better than to send me out...

    Casting at the Sun and The Deepening Pool were brilliant. Every other offering from Yatesy I've read has bored me to tears.
