necessity being the mother of invention. Love it.
I once went to put up my brollie when it started lashing down only to find that i had somehow managed to leave the ground spike behind (it was a bit bent so didn't fit into the tube fully and was too long to go into rod bag assembled). Mackled it up with a large bank stick, a couple of rolls of gaffa tape that i happened to have in the car boot, guide ropes tied to a couple of overhanging tree branches. kept me reasonably dry but uncomfortable enough to ensure that i didn't make the same mistake again.
I once forgot my wallet (I must have some Webster genes), so i borrowed enough money to pay for my entry and super pool.
Returning to the pub for the results, I thought my catch would probably be a framing weight, so scrounged a pint from a mate.
Results declared, I'm 2nd, but the winner neglected to enter the super pool, thus debts settled and a profitable days fishing.
if you need any tips on forgetting stuff i am your man!!! alders last year left pole rollers on drive! club match all top kits still at home! another club match all bait in kitchen,other times landing net handles keepnets the list goes on, always remember my flask and fags though lol
