Today, i went fishing with my dad and a mate of mine, got there approx 8 am, 4 lakes were matched up, this wasnt a problem, as we arrived at our peg ( on a lake that was half being used as a match) the match fisherman started off fishing, about 1 hour in they started shouting and swearing, they got louder and louder until they finished when they were effing and blinding because of their weights, it ruined my day as i couldnt relax with those lot shouting, i know this does not relfect most match fisherman, and i am not tarring you all with the same brish, but it does paint a bad picture for the majority of sound fisherman.

Probably a club match use do tend to get this with small club matches as most of them are not serious match anglers.

what mickes me off[:I] is the fact that the fisheries are putting most of the lakes out to match fishing i appreciate they need to earn a crust, however surley a little more consideration should be given to the pleasure anglers like yourselves,the arse holes you encountered today didnt catch much due to gobbing off all day[;)]

Why go on the match lake in the first place?? There were 3 others to choose from.

if you read the post mate, all of them were matched up bar one, which was full, i had no choice. also it isnt a match lake. they just hold matches on all the lakes.

i come from a club who has banter around the lake quite alot, my club as you say is not full of serious match anglers and most of them go for they day out [me included] i can see where you're coming from crowder it is off putting but what you have to realise is when fishing is hard there is not much else to do. but i do see your point

obviously, swearing is part of most peoples everyday lives, but when your shouting it just puts people off, as i said it just gives our sport a bad name.

but those who are there would be used to it? i agree it can do, but if you think about it football thugs dont really give football a bad name? shouting around the lake is bad again i agree if the match men keep it to a usual talking volume it's ok in my eyes as its quiet and most people around you can hear you,

no, at sherwood forest farm park. it was a small club match, im ure if they were preofessionals they would have been more civilissed, but it just ruined the peace ad quiet.

what do you expect fishing a commercial fishery? with matches on the other 3 lakes? a quiet day? on a weekend?

Its a sad part of human nature and the way our sport has gone Crowder.
When we fished a lot of matches along canals and rivers then you had a natter and a laugh with the blokes in the next peg without being intrusive to everyone else.
These days your more often than not all sat round a commercial puddle and you will always get some not a nice chap with a gob like a bucket who wants to be the centre of attention.
If you want a weekends fishing with some peace and quiet mate I suggest respectfully that you change your choice of venues.
