Sorry I couldn't think of a better first topic but my question is what constitutes a session to you ?

For me it's a couple of days or more. I rarely fish longer than that in the UK but I can happily do a week abroard.

So what about you ?

Nowadays I very very rarely do more than 48hours in one go, used to do a whole week at the beginning of the season in the days when we had closed seasons on lakes.

Hi Rob, for me a session is anything longer than fishing dawn 'til dusk that also involves sleeping under cover, be that a Bivvy or Brolly.

However, I've heard full time Carp anglers calling a solid 3 month stint on one water a session! Posted Image

The most I've done is 3 days & 2 nights, totalling about 60 hours. However, although I sleep on the bank I don't have my rods out during the night. The rods also come in for a break of about an hour each lunchtime to chat to members and have a shower.

So does that count as one long session or three 16 hour ones?

Do any of you long session anglers bring your rods in for a break for any reason and if so what?

good evening gents.

how long is a session???, well i expect that it is different for every one.

on a purly personal level the longest session i have had was 2 months solid on the bank, with out a break. Now i do mainly a week at a time.

and before anyone makes any cracks, my wife also come's with me at all times.

For me a session is any time I go fishing.
I can imagine telling Sonja that I am going for a session down the pub and turn up a week later at home.
I hope the advice, information etc regarding carp fishing (even if its just an hour on the way home)will still be available on here or the coarse section.
I learnt so much from the coarse section.

Welcome to AN Nobby.

Have a good one Elton.

Rob, your topic is a good one for me as I was confused as to wether I was an angler, a carp angler, session carp angler etc or just an ordinary guy that likes to go carp fishing.

Hi all, I think one thing is becoming very clear in that everyones idea of a session is different.

I also feel a session in fishing terms is anyhing longer than dawn till dusk!

Even just doing an overnighter, generally speaking, will constitute at least 18 hours - its not very often through the year that one is able to fish for 18 hours in daylight!

In answer to your question I generally bring the rods in for an hour or two early afternoon, for a walkabout. Unless of course the fish are active in which case I don't bother.
