I really miss commercials! Where I am living the only place where I can park behind my peg is over an hour away. Most venues involve a long hike, fences to climb and rough (jungle like) terrain. The hike means I cannot carry my seat box, the fences and terrain means I can’t use a barrow, it’s travel light or stay at home. You cannot find a venue where you can ge a bank stick in…I’ve had to buy a rod pod ffs. Once the effort has been made it’s great fishing and you tend to be alone, there are still not many Irish coarse anglers, and this makes it worthwhile. I wouldn’t swap it but I must admit that the thought of driving to my peg, a comfortable, level platform and a cafe for breakfast and cups of fresh tea is very appealing. OK, 99% of bites will be carp but, so what, at least you have an enjoyable days fishing. So, before you jump on the commie bashing bandwagon, think of the words from Joni Mitchell, you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.
