About this blog
I'm one of those who returned to fishing during the first lockdown and become re-obsessed. When I'm not on the bank or studying the angling press, I'm tying more hook links, liquidising bread or planning my next trip. Only thing is, I don't often catch much. Frankly, I don't think I'm doing much wrong, but when starting this blog in March 2021, I'd blanked in over half of my fifteen winter trips to various waters of Newbury Angling Association. The rivers, canals and lakes are fine, I'm just not very good at catching. I can't be the only one lacking watercraft so I started this blog to celebrate my lack of ability and maybe console others like me who will never get to add their carp pictures to Facebook, and still treat any fish over a pound as a minor miracle.
