Going to the dark side

Post by Tdreamer » Sun Nov 26 2017 17:24

[I have a nearby trout fishery it's been there for years and I have decided to give it a go tomorrow. Just the bait lochan. Looking forward to six hours of contemplating my navel and watching a rod tip and hopefully getting my 23 quids worth with a bag limit which is 4 fash.
Bring it on.

Been a couple of years now since I wet a line for trout
Hopefully you'll catch your limit and that the fish will be a good size to .
Be nice if you could let us know how you do John .
Regards
Tom

Only went trout fishing once,it was when the kids were little,we went to Thorpe Park(I think)We were given a rod(or bit of bamboo,can't remember that either) and some sweetcorn,as soon as the sweetcorn touched the water you had a trout,i unhooked them and put them back,got bollocked because you are not supposed to put them back

Smallest stockies are 3ib. There's a few double figure rainbows. If I'm honest I don't want one of those. Eff me we've just had a power cut. Whole toons oot.

Got limit by 1.30 bought another ticket two hours for two. Caught them by 3 and home the road. It felt like being in a fish shop where you catch and kill and pay for your fish which it is. I'll be back but on the fly lochans catch and release. Enjoyed the day but fifty quid all in for the day. Eh?
Naw no again.

Yep John, pretty s h i t way to fish IMO, the thing is some desperate f e c k e r s do it week in week out, cannot get my head around that I'm afraid. Plus it cost way to much money.
