Fishing.

Postby rbt2 » 14 Jul 2012, 16:48

Anyone else on here partake?
Me and the boy will be starting again next week.
She sometimes comes with us and reads a book whilst suntanning but with the weather this summer???
Anyhoo, we usually go to a place where there are plenty of 'mug' fish.
You catch all day long, no skill involved but it keeps him quiet.
So anyone else like fishing?

3 of us used to go to a local place in Notts called L lake years ago. We'd set up, have a few cans, take turns on the line and pass the Game Boy colour around. The fish weren't great, about 16lb was the average and 34lb tops, but it was a good peaceful few hours out.

Then they fixed the hole in the fence and employed somebody to check memberships and that ruined it all!

Nah not really. Somebody drowned there and it put people off going.

As an aside, me and boysy sometimes go sea fishing on me best mate's boat.
As enjoyable trips as they are, give me coarse fishing anyday!
My mate disagrees vehemently but he is wrong!

I dunno if this is scientifically proven or if he was just pulling our pisser, but an older bloke that was always there used to swear by putting his bait under his tongue for a few seconds. He used maggots.

I am a French Polisher by trade.
Dunno what that has any relevance too.......actually I do.
Anglers used to put maggots in their mouths in winter to 'liven' the maggots up.
However, some maggots used to be coloured with chyrsadine (sp?) which was later found to cause cancer.
If any of you wish a deeper explanation then don't pm me as I will tell you to f**k off.
Google it!

Believe you me, Magnifico. My maggot in her mouth would have been a birthday treat. My birthday is 28th May. We got married 14th July. That's a fair long wait, you know!

Used to go every week growing up, mainly as a reason to see me grandad. Used to fish for his working men's club team, won a fair few tournaments too as a kid. I've not been once since he died though. Used to get all my stuff from Tom Pickering's shop round the corner from me mam's.
My mrs (a posh, middle class southerner), of all people, is the one trying to get me to go again, mainly cos she's never done it and wants to go. There's f**k all coarse fishing out here now I'm in Vancouver though, I don't even know how it would work here. It's all sea and salmon fishing, and I've never done either.

I watched a bit of Fishomania yesterday on Sky Sports.

No i'm not making the name up and yes i was bored. It was strangely engaging though watching the chubby bloke fight to get a single fish for 25 minutes.
Death to Ming!

Me and boysy are gone fishin' very early tomorrow A. M.
We are going to this place near East Grinstead where the carp are plentiful.
He is, of course, going after the easy, mug carp.
Whilst me, the natural hunter, is going after the tench.
Or tinca tinca.
As I believe they're called in Latin.
