Does anyone else struggle with motivation to prepare to go fishing? Ive not fished since the river closed and not been on a lake since last closed season. Toying with the idea of getting the match gear together but just CBA with going to buy pellets, maggots etc. Tying hooklengths, checking the pole laccies, making up rods/rigs, prepping bait, etc etc. Used to love being ready for matches but now it seems like a faff even though i know it'll be worth it sacking up on a commercial. Come june 16th it'll be a tin o meat and corn, one made up rod a net and a two minute walk to the river. How things have changed. Ive toyed with selling my match gear but i know i'll regret it in the future. Is it normal to fluctuate in passion for angling? Ive been mad keen for over 30 years and this is the first time ive felt like this.
