A sixth of an acre is not an angling water; it's a garden pond. I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would want to fish in such a diminutive puddle. Hardly the "great outdoors", is it?

Didn't someone catch a fish from a garden pond in "Fishing Race"?

You could just scoop them up in your landing net, why dont you try Cackle Hill Lakes or Sam's both are nearby; at least they are bigger and will offer you more of a challenge.
Better still join KAPS or Maidstone Victory and fish their club waters.

After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.

If your enjoying yourself J.G. then go for it - fishing a quiet puddle in the company of nice people - isn't that what it's all about ?

We all started somewhere and I guess a lot of us have fished the odd garden pond along the way.

The garden pond episode was an ill-judged element in the Fishing Race. Yes, I know it was done as a joke, but I reckon it was still in bad taste. Those who participated in that particular bit of filming obviously thought otherwise - frankly, I think they were wrong.

Whether the Fishing Race was ill judged, and I agree that it may have been, your statement regarding J.G's water and his enjoyment of it was rather harsh ?
Anyone who finds enjoyment and beauty in the smallest places is a lucky angler whatever their catches represent to others, there are days in the office when I would be very happy to spend an afternoon sat by a small pond catching 5 lbers
