Hmmmmm..... is winning the be all and end all of angling....? I know a couple of lads who say that they'd give up fishing if they couldn't match fish ... that leads me to believe that the actual act of fishing is not the driving force behind their hobby, but the urge to compete.... I'm glad to say that's not what I'm about..... my pleasure comes from seeing the float disappear and my surroundings rather than how much money I can win...
I have tried fishing the Old Guys matches and even then I find the whole thing a chore.... I'm far happier taking a few bits and having a waggle on me own or with a buddy these days rather than the whole "club outing" "match" thing
