Fishing my club pond today. I though an I the only one who talks to the fish. I like to fish the margins or next to reeds. lilies ect. And quite often find my self telling the fish. Stay out of there, no your not going there, come here you little devil ect. Am I the only one.

I always do it especially at the net...."please don't come off"

Usually it's "You tw*t"...as another one snaps me in the reeds.
I also talk to them while I'm unooking them, "keep still mate, I'll sort you out"

My first thought was “what kind of weirdos talk to fish?”

Then I realised the kind of weirdos that go fishing, which includes me. I do tell my fish to get away from snags, that “no you don’t, come on now get out of there” type chatter is more frequent than I realised. Like @The Landlord, I also tell fish to calm down in the net. It doesn’t seem to reassure them much but it makes me feel better 🤣
