I never read about fishing the night before a trip...sounds stupid but its stuck with me since I was akid.
My mate has got one of those troll dolls with all the hair etc stuck to his rear buzzer bar and swears by it!!

I always pour a small libation from my flask into the water to appease the water gods before I start fishing.

Only thing I'm funny about is never to get my net ready before I'm ready to cast in.

I always wear my Daiwa "lucky" hat I bought about 15 years ago !

Sometimes it doesn't work !

Before anybody mentions it, no it wasn't hard to find the right size, (6 1/8)

I dont have any lucky charms as such but I have one peice of kit that I would break my heart to lose and thats an old bone handled kitchen knife that my granny gave me for a fishing knife when I was a kid. It still has a bend in the blade where I tried to kill an apache that was hiding behind a tree when I was about 9.[:D]

I dont think its a good luck thing either but I dont hear the last of it if I dont kiss Linda and Saffron bye bye before I go regardless of whatever time I leave the house.
I know Im the luckiest guy alive to have them though. No feller was ever loved more.

I always try to have a dump before I leave in the morning! [:D]

But that's more because I'm a tight sod and don't want to waste
my day ticket money 'performing' [:D][:D][:D]

I avoid walking under laders.

Keep out the way of black cats.

Stuff lucky heather in me underwear.

And do my secret fishing dance in the gargen before i leave.

This works a treat as my fishing is always consistant.

I used to have a friend who 'payed' the lake before starting fishing and would always throw a ten pence piece in the water before casting out. He used to say that if he didn't catch anything it was because he hadn't thrown enough in!




I used to have a thing about Rabbits and Pheasants.

The number of carp I would catch was equivalent to the number of Rabbits I'd see on the road on the way to the lake. When I go trout fishing at Bewl Reservoir, the number of trout I'm going to catch equates to the number of Pheasants beside the road leading down to the Lodge.




Needless to say, there has been a distinct lack of both in recent years!..............

The only ritual I have is putting bait on the hook, never put a hook out without it [:D]

me and charliecarp have a luck scale. you start on zero.camera is -1 luck,landing net -1 luck, any sort of kreel/keepnet -2 luck.etc.you need lucky hats and good omens of various sorts to get a rating of at least 0 or maybe +1.also pre-organising sessions counts heavily against you...
