Never used a center pin, never caught a salmon/ sea trout, never done fly fishing, never caught a zander, never cast over 65 meters to my knowledge. Never caught a 20lb + carp to my knowledge. Never caught a pike or perch on a lure/spinner. There may be more.
Seeing a few posts about centrepins this morning, made me realise that I’ve never used a centrepin. And despite fishing rivers for years I’ve also never caught a trout! And I’ve never caught a single fish on expander.
Which aspects of angling have you never done that might surprise us?
Reading through the list of people's "nevers" I realise that I have done an awful lot in my fishing life.
Sea fished from shore and boat (including after barracuda in Florida)
Fly fished, though not on a river
Used a centrepin
Caught all manner of species including zander, pike, grass carp, bitterling (Decoy lakes), pumpkinseed fish, catfish (small), sturgeon (sterlet?), trout, flounder from a trout stream (my first fish) but not caught salmon or sea trout though I did once have a sea trout chase a worm I was retrieving.
I have fished in England, Scotland and Ireland as well as Belgium (won a match there) and France
Fished most coarse methods except lure for pike & perch and "carp" fishing behind multiple rods
Beaten a world champion (Joe Roberts)
