Yeah, because you could kick the habit anytime you like couldnt you mate ? 😆😆👍

No, not me I'm only taking some kit so I can sit by the river all day, studying the wildlife and the scenery. :whistle::whistle:

It's not my fault that the best wildlife lives beneath the water and I need some kit to catch it, :D:D

I'm hoping he gets his big landing net wet Mark ... And a few times. Its nice catching good fish but, its nicer hearing others have. Kev getting another big Barbel would make me very happy. Very happy indeed. 👍

Thanks Mick I reckon it will be a few years before I top my first one, I see more like taking my first steps on the journey, everyone has to start somewhere and I am lucky to have very experienced barbel hunters to ask questions and learn from, like yourself, @Northantslad @HALTON DANGLER and there is some bloke called @Total that's supposed to have caught one I believe......:D

Thank you Dave 👍. Shouldn’t you be sat on top of the A64 road bridge fishing the Wharfe today ? I’m guessing you’d have to sit up there now wouldn’t you ? What’s it carrying Dave ? Bet you can’t wait for it to start dropping can ya ? 🎣👍

The whisper is Kev that it was a gudgeon but, we let him believe it was a Barbel. No ones got the heart to tell him. He’s such a nice lad. 🤣🤣

<<<<<Just checking me book of fishes for that day...:oops:......Sod it, they were all gudgeon......All 100 pound of them....;):love::giggle:
A mate of mine ( yes, I do have the one ) reckons he once threw a 5 oz + gudgeon back while fishing the Leeds / Liverpool canal back in the 90’s. New record I think. 😩😩
