Sadly, I miss my family too much to enjoy being away for very long, plus it all becomes hard work - whether I'm catching or not.

Every other week-end from Friday to Sunday afternoon suits me fine.

i have been fishing since i was a kid. havent stopped. the gaps between sessions are filled with this work stuff at the moment. certainly the past few years on the mead have been one big session. 5 years long!

actual longest session is about 10 days. after that, my games of murder in the dark take on a new and dangerous twist.

there are some people you can spend a weekend fishing with, those same people you may not be able to tolerate for a whole week. i have fished for a whole week with starman and lived to tell the tale. he is one of the few i could sit on the bank with for days.

session fishing is ok if you keep on the move. sitting in one swim for a week bores me to death!
