The two best times to go fishing are when it's raining and when it's not

 I like the idea of the cannon for carp Phone, what sort of ammunition would you recommend?

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

In the old days, highland lairds stocked mountain lochans with trout, carried up in wooden barrels on a ghillie's back.   Not an ergonomically or economically sound exercise, but of course little cost to the laird.     I've trekked to quite a few such. Sometimes they are ful of tiddler trout, but soetimes there are fish over a pound apiece in quite tiny lochans.
