I agree with Malevans.I often flyfish for small wild Trout in Derbyshire streams.It is not the size of the fish that counts but overcoming the problems involved in catching them.

Saying that I am an allrounder and see all fish the same.There are challenges involved in catching any fish,the size is irrelevant.

Can't really explain any better.

just a question to all coarse fishermen, and not in the negative sense, i know angling is a pleasure to take part in but i cant understand this fascination ps im not knocking you all im just trying to understand why

Seems to me Tony, that you have not done much catching of fish. Eh. Otherwise you wouldn't be asking.

Because I'm a masochist. Though not to the extent of some anglers, who'll wait out all night for one bite.

 

It's also a bit like golf, which I took up for a short while. I'd go out, play dreadfully, and ask myself why I bothered. But then I'd start to think of ways I could do better.........

 

In addition, I'm a member of the 'Crabtree generation' who read a book which captured our imaginations. As a teenager I used to dream of misty mornings fishing for tench, of 'sail-away bites' and all the other 'atmospheric' angling jargon that lives on in anglers'net. It's all to do with dreams. I also used to dream of the Kennet, for some reason - and then I came to Newbury (on Kennet) - strangely getting a job I never applied for.

what do you get out of catching a load of small fish that put up little or no fight just to return them,

Me? Absolutely nothing, that's why I don't fish for small fish.

Small fish can be induced to take your bait.

The angler can make a difference.

So there's plenty of jigging the bait about and resetting the rig.

Even on the coldest most windswept day you will find some out of the way corner where the fish will oblige.

Recognising the signs, finding the fish and then tricking them into a take.

 

Now there is a game.

 

Set the hooksize, line and float to match the fish and then the skill is needed. NO bait alarms, bait runners, bombs, or military hardware is needed. Above all there is no time to sit in a bivvy. I hardly have time to sit in a chair.

 

The mind cannot sit in neutral, just as in fly fishing.

 

Still ..... silly ole me. I suspect it just comes down to it passes the time while the angler waits for a big one.

Others might suggest that it reflects on the common or garden species that us thoroughly coarse types fish for. This is opposed to game fish that the rather more refined fellows fish for, more generally fish for the table. There was a time when the UK had the most exhaustive class system in the world, it even entered the wonderful world of angling.
