I can really relate to this mate. Nowadays the prep for a match is much more intensive than it used to be. The days when you could just grab your box, hold-all and net bag and go to any venue, knowing you had the rods, floats and reels to cover any eventuality are long gone. If I am fishing a match on Sunday, I would start tying rigs etc on the Wednesday. Then on match day, it’s several trips to the car to load and unload at the venue. As you say, the sheer effort takes a lot of the fun out of it.I went through a stage like this and it sounds silly but I think I was over complicating things / having too much gear if anything. If became a chore / faff to get it all ready and set up etc and it took a bit if the fun out.
I stripped everything back and now only take what I need and got the love back again.
Not sure if that helps at all / you can relate?
The time off from going made me love fishing again though
