I'm a complete mess both arriving and setting up and packing up on the bank.

In an ideal world; Seatbox, Any groundbait / Micros / Pumped Pellets, Feeder out to the side & then pole.

Buuuuuuuuuut I'm usually zoned out and it can go in any order. 9/10 I'll forget to put my landing net together also. Worst habit ever.

Took my dogs on the canal for a walk this morning and came across two anglers that had just got there. The first item they were putting up was their landing nets. I said Jokingly .... “ you two are optimistic aren’t ya ? They said .... “ Well, if anything was to blow in we can get it out quick “. I’d never thought of that myself. Usually it’s the last thing I set up before a session is my landing net.
Always set up landing net first and break it down last.
Can then fish flask or hat out of the pond if they go in!
