Since the advent of the Commie I have stopped taking food to matches as most of them serve breakfast etc on site. This really upsets my missus, she used to love packing a veritable feast for my snap when I was off on a match.

The one thing I can't stop doing is taking a flask (or two) of Tea.

I normally take a couple of sausage rolls. Bovril in winter and orange squash to drink in summer. I find that taking a break can help me refocus and think about what I am doing, particularly if I am struggling.

Flask of Heinz (it has to be Heinz) tomato soup. They used to do a spicy one with chorizo (shoreetho) but it seems to have disappeared

Not fished a match for many years but when I did I would always have something to drink with me and a couple of chocolate bars, but I did make sure I ate before I left to go to the match. Now for pleasure fishing if I am going to be out any length of time I always take food and drink with me as I like to take a short break mid session, get off the box stretch my legs and just re focus a little, also if I am using a keepnet it acts as a good time to empty the keepnet

Not at the level I fish at I should point out,but a boost of energy (choc,bar etc.)would always be beneficial to any match,

Chicken and mushroom pastie, bottle of water and a cheeky chocky bar... I need to invest in a quality flask though

Usually take a couple of sandwiches but rarely eat them until I'm on the way home. I don't really do breakfast though & never get hungry until late morning.
Can't do without taking a flask of coffee though & will get through about 5 cups in a session.

Bag of hula hoops as I can tip these into my mouth without touching them with my fishy mitts. Also a steak slice and flask of coffee.
