The Third Last Cast  lc1And one more time for the kiddies...See? Three. Count them. OK this is the final 'last cast'. Maybe

...so, clicking on this footnote takes you somewhere else...ah go on. You know you want to...

"Angling is somewhat like poetry, men are to be born so: I mean, with inclinations to it, though both may be heightened by discourse and practice" Izaac Walton  IZAnyone can get better at anything with practise. It's a useful piece of advice.

Yet Another short questionnaire:

  1. Is your answer to the question "Which float shall I use in the prevailing conditions?" usually "My favourite"?
  2. Are you a hunter, as opposed to a trapper? 3        This is why it's called 'angling' not 'catching'.
  3. Do you have more rods and reels than you strictly need? 4        It's not an obsession. Oh no. Definitely not. Could give it up any time I like. Yeah. Just a bit tired, that's all...
  4. Can you catch fish without the aid of electronics? 5        You need electronics to catch fish? Really? Are you sure you've got the right hobby?
  5. Do you like catching 'nuisance fish'? 6        I don't recognise the concept of 'nuisance' fish. To me there are fish and other fish. They're all good. Even bream. A bit.
  6. Do you have "permission to fish"? (Really, this is essential.)

If the answer to all of the above is "yes", then you are probably on 'the path by the water'. See you out there...
