It's time for new years resolutions and you are much more likely to stick you your plans if you make them public.

So, what are your resolutions and, as this is an angling site, what are you fishing goals for 2018? 

 

The start of 2018 will be dry for me and although I may relent a little if I'm out socially, I don't expect to be drinking alcohol in any quantity until at least June.

I'll also be starting a serious diet with a view to dropping 25kg's and finding a gym once the new years rush wears off.

 

Fishing wise, I want to find the time to target the barbel on the Severn because I haven't done it in years.

I try to plan one day at a time so resolutions pointless tomorrow may never appear

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste

Snap!

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.
