Over the last two years as a would be angler I have heard a number of reasons (excuses) for not catching fish. A few are listed below does anyone know any others (Sorry if this has been posted before)

The water is too cold

The water is too hot

The weather is / has been too cold

The weather is / has been too Hot

The water is too clear

The water is too cloudy

The close season has just ended and the fish are spooked by the floats hitting the water

Your super market sweetcorn is not made by a jolly green giant

Im sure there are lots more, hows about it MDs I need them for my fishing (blanking) sessions [:(][:(][:(][:(]

The pressure is too high / too low.

The pressure is rising / falling.

Norm did something evil to my boilies.

Trogg stood too close to the bank and the fish all rushed away in terror.

I did catch a couple of big ones but when I looked closely, they looked foreign so I threw them back without even a picture.

mike s - no, no, no. You don't understand. At least 3 of the reasons you posted might be seen as your fault and the idea is the blanks were completely beyond your control.

Hello

My valid one: the water on the canal is too cold and clear at the moment, thanks to all the hail showers.

and the one i hear most often on the canal from the motorbike,beer can and telescopic rod crowd " theres no fish left, the bosnians took em all"

good luck
ADAM

Oh, one more "theres no fish left in the Rye River, Intel killed them all with Cyanide"
