The fishing thread.

Post by Shio hime » Sun May 08, 2016 9:15 pm

Ok for real this time.

I actually do enjoy fishing. Maybe saying I'm an enthusiast is a bit far, but it's a nice way to kill a Saturday every now and then.

Anyone else here enjoy it? Coarse fishing or sea fishing? Both? Fishermen unite.

Used to go fishing quite a bit, think I still have my licence from 2011 in my wallet. Always freshwater stuff though


in total I have lost about 10 floats by casting out too far

I lost my old license. I always thought licenses were a bit of a piss take especially by the time you add the cost of a lot of places to go and fish.

Mind you I guess they do serve a decent purpose if you're just fishing in random rivers.

Used to go quite regularly since it's one of the few things my Dad and I actually share as a common interest, but haven't been for about 2 years now though.

Only ever been freshwater fishing in local ponds and canals though, never saltwater given I'm gooseberry fool eton mess scared of sailing, and because the nearest place to me you can do it is a near 2 hour drive away each way, so it's easier and cheaper to go freshwater.

Can't even begin to mention the amount of tackle I've lost in trees and through my own stupidity. Also hooked myself quite a lot when casting out somehow, and my brother has hooked my nose once. I'm not sure how that happened, but thank gooseberry fool he was using a barbless hook, otherwise it could've been a lot nastier than it was...

I've always preferred sea fishing if you want to actually spend a lot of time reeling them in. I love just flinging feathers out over and over again and reeling it back.

Fresh water is a great way to kill time on a warm afternoon with some mates and some beers. Provided no one gets too bread and buttered.

I am so glad my only hook related injuries are catching myself when putting the bait on

speaking of which, sweetcorn was my bait of choice. Cheap as hell and the closest bait shop was miles away compared to asdas being five minutes on foot

also not sure if you were meant to pay for fishing at the lakes in bluewater, if you were I sure as hell didn't

Luckily mine is a 10 minute walk away, with the bait being stupid cheap too, so maggots and/or worms were my choice whenever I went, depending on what I felt like fishing for that day.

I always found luncheon meat was pretty decent bait for freshwater. Same reasons as sweetcorn which was another favourite.

I quite liked using maggots too, but you can't keep them long cause they start to smell horrendous and turn into flies. So if the bait shop wasn't on the way to where I was going then I had to stick with more preservable stuff.

Yeah, and corn was great for use with the slingshot. Have used calamari and lug worms before when I went sea fishing with my cousin, that was an experience

also how rude crisps

Tried it once down the river wye, back when I didn't need a license for it. Didn't even get a single bite.

Now the water is private and you need a license as well as a day pass in order to fish there which costs way too much for something I'd only do for a few hours while on holiday. Wouldn't catch anything anyway, too many kayaks and boats go down the river and scare away the fish.

Just simply getting in the way is one of my biggest bugbears.

Thankfully no one else was around to annoy me when i found a massive one under a rock in Brixham once.

I usually come down there for a day roughly once a year, last time i did it was last summer and i had fish & chips in the cafe next to the fudge shop. I also always end up at Fishcombe Cove, as that seems to be one of the best places for finding sea life.

I suspect a number of ONM'ers/SONM'ers have seen me at some point or another as i do have a tendency to be everywhere, i suspect the folks here from Plymouth have walked right past me in Drake Circus before without even realising.
